Image Analysis of Rock Textures. Present Status and Problems in its Automation. by Susumu Ikeda, Satoru Nakashima, Akira Tsuchiyama.
Textures of rocks as well their chemical compositions have quantitative information on formation histories. Therefore, it is important to develop common and automatic techniques the texture description. In this paper, applications image analyses representation rock textures were reviewed. Image consist acquisition, processing, images. BSE has been predominantly used for these procedures, although other kinds images (e.g. color acquired by scanners microscopes) in recent years. binary are produced thresholding grey scale or images, grains (or grain boundaries) recognized. This procedure a crucial role following processing quantification. Quantitative mode, size distribution, shape factors carried out based Many algorithms such developed. two workshops analysis organized 1996 1997, several technical problems discussed.For example, difficulty recognizing boundaries basic problem using any imaging tools. We should also new tools X-ray CT NMR obtain directly 3D data.
