Brief description The Advanced Macro-scale Testing Chamber (AMTC) is a novel laboratory testing device capable of recreating deep geological conditions which can occur at depths of up to 13km underground. The AMTC will help scientists and engineers understand the Earth's behaviour during deep geological activities such as geothermal energy collection, pollutant disposal, underground mining and earthquake modelling.
