Use our facilities to process and scan your cores and collect the data you need to answer your research questions.
Initial core description (ICD) is the portion of core processing that precedes subsampling and analysis. Data collected during ICD, especially lithological and compositional information form the basis and context for all further analyses, and often provide most of the interpretation of depositional environments and changes.
Samples are extracted from cores for discrete analyses, using tools appropriate for the lithologies.
The CSD Facility coordinates analyses at the lab on a fee-for-service basis. Technicians can perform the procedures, or facility visitors can be trained in preparation and analysis.
The CSD Facility curates a collection of software for core analysis.
The CSD Facility maintains an inventory of commonly used lab supplies.
