... that integrates backscattered electron images (BSEI) with electron microprobe (EMP) analyses. This method, which allows derivation of excess O in opal-A that is then used as a proxy for the total water content of the opal-A, highlights microscale variations in the water content. Such mapping has a lower limit...

Unfortunately, this method cannot be applied to dolomite crystals, like those in the dolostones found in the Cayman Formation on Grand Cayman, that lack the trace elements that produce cathodoluminescence (cf. Pleydell 1987 ). Backscatter electron imaging (BSEI...

The usual problems associated with thresholding a grey-level image to provide the necessary binary image for analysis are partly overcome by the use of Wiener filtering methods to remove much...

Together, the microfabric and geochemical methods enable the identification of clay layer mass transport deposits despite bioturbational mixing of the original end-members. Two cores with robust radionuclide chronologies contain correlative clay layers dated to 1979...

Because of the anisotropic nature of mudstones, elastic properties are not scalars at the length/thickness scales that can be defined using seismic methods. Properties of interest are likely to be different parallel to bedding compared...

If one aims to automate the process, it is essential to realise that images have to be acquired wherein individual minerals are contrasted as much as possible. This depends heavily on the quality of the imaging...
