Middle Devonian Marcellus Shale and late Devonian New Albany Shale samples were argon-ion milled and studied by scanning electron microscope for petrographic features and pore development. Petrographic observations revealed that a finite number of pore types exist in spite of considerable variability in composition, depositional setting, and compaction history. The four major pore types are framework pores, framework shelter pores, dissolution pres within inorganic grains, and organic matter pores.
