Regolith LabDSC01136

The Regolith Analysis Laboratory provides for the use of physical and chemical procedures in determining the mineralogical, textural, and structural characteristics of natural bodies consisting of loose materials at the earth’s surface (i.e., regolith). Studies of regolith are useful for research in geomorphology, hydrology, and other disciplines requiring an understanding of earth surface processes. The lab is equipped with a chemical fume hood, drying oven, muffle furnace, refrigerator, a variety of glassware and other basic labware useful for sediment and soil characterization, filtration pump, petrographic and reflected-light microscopes, and computers. The lab also contains an array of precision instruments for studying the magnetic properties of earth materials. The Regolith Analysis Lab is under the direction of Dr. Dan Royall.

Virtual Computing Lab

MyCloud  is a UNCG service that offers access to applications and virtual computer desktops over the internet. MyCloud student users have access to the Student Desktop. This service offering expands the capability of UNCG’s virtual learning space. It provides access to a full computer desktop environment that contains much of the software used for academic and research purposes.  The MyCloud link will take you to an ITS webpage that explains the app.
