Geosciences

The Department of Geosciences does research within the subject areas of mineralogy and isotope geology, and is responsible for the mineral collections of the museum.

Research

Our mineralogical research deals with the occurrence, formation and properties of minerals and their role in geological processes. We also carry out research both in bedrock geology and geochronology and in low-temperature isotope geochemistry. Read more under Our research.

Collections

We are also responsible for the upkeep and documentation of our mineral collections and for making them accessible to the research community and the general public. Identification service is offered to the public depending on time available. Commissions from authorities and the industry are also carried out. More information under Collections and databases.

Access or loans

Access or loans from the collections are granted to Swedish and foreign researchers as well as interested amateur researchers. Please contact Jörgen Langhofexternal link.

Instruments and equipment

Our highly specialized isotope laboratories and instruments are the only ones of their kind in Sweden and serve as a national facility. For more information, see Instruments and equipment.

Also located at the department is the Nordic ion microprobe facility NORDSIM and Vegacenter, a center for microanalysis.

SYNTHESYS

The Swedish Museum of Natural History has been part of the Integrated Infrastructure Initiative SYNTHESYS, supported by the European Union during 2004-2013, and has received foreign (European) visitors for training and research under this scheme. A continuation of the program for a new four-year period ("SYNTHESYS-3") started in September 2013. More information on the web pages below.
