IT lab funding
students now have access to industry standard computer
facilities in earth sciences thanks to generous funding
from the ExxonMobil higher education support scheme.
money has been used to equip a new project laboratory
opened on November 28 by ExxonMobil's Dr Christine Gleeson
and Dr David Moreton.
new computers and software will speed up work, such as
modelling plate tectonics and mapping seismic data and
will be used primarily by fourth year undergraduates for
their final year independent project work.
