The Sedimentary Petrology laboratory of the University of Liège mainly studies Palaeozoic and Mesozoic carbonate-containing sediments. The research topics studied include reef and littoral sedimentation processes, basin dynamics, magnetic susceptibility, microbiological interference with sedimentation and diagenesis of carbonates.

Research topics related to the marine field are:
- Sedimentation processes and variations in magnetic susceptibility of sediments in order to reconstruct the palaeoenvironment. Changes in magnetic susceptibility are also used to detect sea level variations;
- Palaeozoic and Mesozoic coral reefs, mounds and atolls.

This group collaborates closely with the Royal Belgian Institute for Natural Sciences (RBINS).
