Petrology and Volcanology

 

The Petrology and Volcanology Laboratory is a part of the Geological Research Group. Petrology is one of the basic geological sciences that studied rocks in the earth’s crust, which include igneous rocks, pyroclastic rocks, sedimentary rocks and metamorphic rocks. Volcanology is the study of everything related to volcanoes.
