Backscattered Scanning Electron Microscopy and Image by David H. Krinsley, Kenneth Pye, Sam Boggs Jr, N. Keith

By David H. Krinsley, Kenneth Pye, Sam Boggs Jr, N. Keith Tovey

Backscattered scanning electron microscopy (BSE) unearths the minerals, textures, and materials of sediments and rocks in a lot larger element than is feasible with traditional optical microscopy. Backscattered Scanning Electron Microscopy presents a concise precis of the BSE procedure. This entire consultant makes use of plentiful photographs to demonstrate the kind of info BSE yields and the appliance of the strategy to the learn of sediments and sedimentary rocks. The authors evaluate using this petrographic approach on all of the significant sedimentary rock forms, together with sediment grains, sandstones, shales, carbonate rocks, rock varnish, and glauconite. additionally they describe photograph research options that permit quantification of backscattered scanning electron microscope photos. seriously illustrated and lucidly written, this booklet will offer researchers and graduate scholars with the most up-tp-date examine in this very important geological instrument.
