    In this fascinating presentation. Dr. Madison’s group at Sandia extends Robo-Met.3D into geology.

    Optical and electron petrography was performed in conjunction with:
     Mercury intrusion capillary pressure on clean/uncleaned samples
     Laser scanning confocal microscopy
     Robotic serial sectioning and reflected light imaging
     Relative permeability and capillary pressure testing

    The end result was an example of coupling observational geology and applied mathematics for developing predictive tools.
