The Imaging Laboratory is a discipline spread over several individual laboratories and serves a variety of disciplines. A primary responsibility is to provide continuous image coverage of Section Halfs and provide pictural documentation of macroscopic and microscopic features throughout the cores. Thus, instruments are available to document high resolution scans of each core section, close-ups, cameras on microscopes that are able to capture images of fossils, smear slides and thin sections as well as a scanning electron microscope including EDS to image down to several 10,000x.
Section Half Imaging Logger (SHIL)
The SHIL is capable of Section Half and Whole-round line scan imaging. Please ask a technician to switch the sample holders and to introduce the software settings.
