Fundamentals of 3D Quantitative Analysis of Geological Materials Using CT

The University of Texas High-Resolution X-ray CT Facility (UTCT) is hosting a three-day short course on the visualization and quantitative analysis of geological samples using CT data.  The course will provide an overview of the acquisition and interpretation of CT data, followed by methods for visualization and 3D quantitative analysis of discrete geological features (e.g. clasts, mineral grains, chondrules, pores, etc.) and fabrics. Accordingly, most of the workshop will be devoted to hands-on training in the commercial package Avizo™ and freeware developed at UTCT including Blob3D and Quant3D. 

A maximum of 8 seats is available and the course will be presented June 23-25, 2014 at the UTCT lab in Austin, Texas. This short course is sponsored in part by the NSF, and funds may be available to help cover the costs of scanning samples, and/or to offset travel and accommodation expenses for the workshop.  There is no charge for the course itself.  Applications are due April 18, 2014.  For the full announcement and application details please visit
