The division of Geology of the KU Leuven University studies a wide range of earth science topics such as archaeometry and geoarchaeology, continental tectonics, hydrogeology and applied geology, biogeology and palaeoclimatology, geodynamics and geofluids and applied mineralogy. Within the context of marine research, the group has expertise in marine microfossils and marine carbonates.
