Laboratory of Environmental Geochemical Analysis (LEGA)

Department head:   Matys Grygar Tomáš, RNDr. CSc.


Laboratory develops and use geochemical tools for description of composition of fluvial, lacustrine, and similar sediments aimed at paleoenvironmental reconstructions. Further, the LEGA team coordinates works, which are essential for interpretation of geochemical datasets and performs its own multidisciplinary research in related areas.
