LabInfrastructure @ Geo.X

Geo.X Laboratory Infrastructure Search

Welcome to the laboratory infrastructure portal: LabInfrastructure@Geo.X!

LabInfrastructure@Geo.X is a search portal that enables scientists and all other interested visitors to find relevant information about the laboratory infrastructures of all Geo.X partner institutions. (The Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) does not operate own laboratory infrastructures. )

LabInfrastructure@Geo.X is operated as a cooperation project: The search portal compiles the laboratory infrastructure of all partners in consistent systematics and quality. Please note the individual terms of use for each laboratory. If you are interested in access please contact the responsible lab manager.

LabInfrastructure@Geo.X is one of the key elements of Geo.X 2.0. As part of the planned expansion of the search portal, further instrument systems, data, software and services will be integrated.

Keep LabInfrastructure@Geo.X up-to-date

The portal is still under development and new entries are constantly being added to the database. Although every effort is made to ensure that the information on the network's laboratory infrastructure is accurate and up-to-date, it cannot be guaranteed that the database is free of inaccurate or outdated entries. The links published in LabInfrastructure@Geo.X are created and presented with great care. However, the editors have no influence on the current and future design and content of the external links. A guarantee for the actuality, correctness and completeness of the links can therefore not be given.

Therefore, your support is needed:

If you wish to add your laboratory to LabInfrastructure@Geo.X or your entries need corrections, please fill in the LabInfrastructure@Geo.X Change Request form and follow the instructions.

Search and filter functions

LabInfrastructure@GFZ offers the following search and filter functions:

→ Search functions
This function includes a keyword search or fulltext search which searches all fields in the data base.
The full text search may be refined by the use of search operators:
To search for two or more keywords separate them by space. Only entries containing these keywords are displayed.
" " The exact phrase is searched.
* Append asterisk to match different word ending, e.g. stereo*.
- Use prefix minus to exclude words from a query, e.g. stereo* -petrel.
→ Filter functions
In general, ′Advanced search′ allows to filter database entries by institution, analytical method, instrumentation, and discipline. Additionally, full text search is possible

Results are ranked in alphabetical order.
