The Laboratory of Geochronology was founded in 1989 through a Catalan infrastructure project that allowed the acquisition of 2 8-channel ORTEC alpha spectrometers. These alpha spectrometers  were renewed in 2010.

The laboratory provides technical support for research groups working on:

  • Absolute dating of upper Pleistocene and Holocene continental and marine carbonate samples for a large variety of purposes such as climate, anthropic, geologic and/or environmental reconstructions.
  • Absolute dating of human and other archaeological carbonate prehistorical rests.
