Regolith

Imaging the rock-atmosphere interface for landscape evolution studies

Regolith is studied by geoscientists for clues to how the atmosphere has interacted with solid rock at the Earth's surface over geological time.  Automated mineralogy provides a micron-scale view of this material, which includes soil, dust and other residual deposits such as calcretes, silcretes, ferricretes and commercially important variants (laterites and bauxites).

Automated Mineralogy and Petrography Brochure

Automated Mineralogy & Petrography is a technology solution that images rocks. It provides valuable information on which minerals are present in a sample (mineralogy) and how they occur spatially (microtexture). Measurements are performed ultrafast and unattended (automated) to allow high sample throughput.
