The Department of Geology manages a variety of modern teaching laboratories and classrooms, including labs dedicated to structural geology, geochemistry, Hydrogeology, Petroleum geology, igneous and metamorphic petrology and crystallography, stratigraphy and paleontology, sedimentology, Geophysics, Petrophysics, Remote Sensing and GIS and physical geology.
The classrooms and labs are equipped with PC desktops or laptops and video projection systems, which have full access to the internet. The department also has an extensive collection of teaching samples and demonstrations for classroom and lab use.
The Department of Geology maintains five state-of-the-art units which are available to researchers both within and without the UAEU community.
The lab equipped with an ion chromatography NCSH-O, a graphite furnace, a LECO Cs 200, a Varian CP 3800 GC pyrolysis instrument, and a Soxhlet apparatus for bitumen extractions, also coupled plasma (ICP) and an atomic absorption/emission (AA/AE) spectrometer to determine total organic carbon (TOC) and bitumen content, bitumen and crude oil compositions, and oil-viscosity determination.
Using a Philips PW/1840 XRD with Ni filter and Cu-K radiation (=1.542A) for determining the chemical composition and physical nature of manufactured and natural materials.
The (RSL) has an extensive collection of landsat ETM-7, JERS-1, ERS-1, ERS-2, SAR-C, and Terra Aster data. The lab facilities are open to the UAEU and UAE community through teaching, research, and community workshops.
The geophysics lab has a multi channel smartseis seismograph, a STING R1 R&IP earth resistivity meter to help in the fields of environmental geophysics, engineering geophysics, earthquake monitoring and seismic Stratigraphy.
While the museum’ collection emphasize the geology of UAE, the museum also have a large international collection of rocks, ores, minerals, gems, and fossils. The museum contains over 1200 samples, including a collection of nearly 250 fossils and 150 igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks from around the UAE. The museum available during the UAEU working days for all visitors from Universities, schools and other authorities from UAE.
