By Sam Boggs Jr,David Krinsley

Minerals in sedimentary rocks emit attribute noticeable luminescence referred to as cathodoluminescence (CL) while bombarded by way of excessive strength electrons. CL emissions should be displayed as color photographs in a cathodoluminescence microscope or as high-resolution monochromatic photographs in a scanning electron microscope. this offers info no longer to be had by way of different concepts at the provenance of the mineral grains in sedimentary rocks, and insights into diagenetic alterations. The e-book, first released in 2006, starts with an simply understood presentation of the basic ideas of CL imaging. this is often via an outline and dialogue of the tools utilized in CL imaging, and a close account of its purposes to the learn of sedimentary rocks. the amount is a complete, simply understood description of the purposes of cathodoluminescence imaging to the examine of sedimentary rocks. it will likely be an enormous source for educational researchers, execs and complicated graduate scholars in sedimentary geology.
