Since the beginning of 1995 the AG is a digital geology, "software controlled" scanning electron microscope (SEM), type: Leica Stereoscan 430 available, which is equipped with the following detectors:

- SE-Detektor (Oberflächenuntersuchungen)

- BSE-Detektor (Elementkontrastuntersuchungen)

- EDX-Detektor (Elementbestimmung mittels Röntgenstrahlung)

- KL-Detektor (Kathodolumineszenzuntersuchungen)

Construction and operation:

The essential components of an SEM are an electron column, a vacuum sample chamber and the associated detectors systems. Similarly, a filament is heated and excited to emit electrons, a filament (tungsten filament). The electrons are accelerated in the electron column and bundled with magnetic lenses. This produces the primary electron beam which is focused onto an electrically conductive sample in the sample chamber at a high vacuum. Through a line generator, the beam is linewise scanned over the sample. This principle gives the device its name. Thus, the SEM operates similarly to a light microscope. The information provided by each point of the sample is collected with detectors and processed to form an image. The magnification range is repeatedly 20-100000.

Applications:

- Essentially it is used for illustration rough surfaces - analysis of particulate samples (rock, mineral fragments)
- Micropaleontology (foraminifera, conodonts, etc.) - Analysis of synthetic products (powder) - "Micromounts"
- aerosols - clay minerals, soils, heavy minerals - Materials Analysis (product testing) - Quality assurance (building materials, metals)
- Materials ResearchContract work carried out for:.... Fa Leube, Fa Weberberger Quarzolith, Eternit Fa, Fa Bosch, Gmundner CeramicsThe Department of Geography and Geology combines social and scientific research groups.

The Department of Geography and Geology is responsible for the courses of study Geography and Geology. Together with the Interfaculty Department of Geoinformatics Z_GIS he shares responsibility for the Master Program in Applied Geoinformatics.

    Researchers led by Salzburg's geoinformatics scientist Christian Neuwirth had already developed and presented a mathematical model for Covid-19 in May 2020 which examines the question of how long and intensively social distancing measures have to be maintained in order to reduce corona deaths further.
    Results of the study on media use by children and families during lockdown. Home schooling could be improved, but is on the right track. Secondary schools have a better profile. Families have learned to deal with lockdown and homeschooling.
    As a result of the current situation the updated opening times for Salzburg University library will apply from the 17th November 2020.
    A study carried out by the sleep laboratory of the Faculty of Natural Sciences on the topic of sleep under the direction Prof. Dr. Manuel Schabus is dedicated to the changes in sleep during the Covid-19 lockdown in 6 different countries (Ö, AT, UK, GR, CU, BRA). The fear, which is worrying from a psychological point of view, and which is evident across society, is also reflected in this data: 78% of those surveyed feel threatened or worried by the Covid-19 pandemic.
    Online lecture on the subject of physiology or medicine: November 25, 2020 - 6 p.m. The 2020 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine will go to Harvey J. Alter, Michael Houghton and Charles M. Rice for the discovery of the hepatitis C virus.
    Online lecture on chemistry: December 2nd 2020 - 6 p.m. Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer Doudna received the 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the discovery of one of the sharpest tools in genetic engineering: the CRISPR / Cas9 genetic scissors. With this technology, researchers can modify the DNA of animals, plants and microorganisms with extremely high precision.
    The PLUS Report 2020 has been published.
    Digitization has led to an enormous spread of different forms of mobile working. Corona has brought an additional boost and has introduced home office in areas and for activities that were previously unimaginable.
    During the time of Corona, in particular, it became clear just how important it is to support students digitally in their every day university life. The project „On Track“ – stay on track combines digital and social worlds. It is starting at the right time!
