MaP wishes Happy Holidays and a Prosperous new year with a funny snow ball – seen in the SEM!
Metal Injected Organic Rich Shale showing the heterogeneity of the connected pore space and transport pathways. Klaver, J., Schmatz, J., Krooss, B., Stockhausen, M., Schwark, L., Urai, J. L., 2016. Porosity and pore connectivity in immature and artificially matured source
Highly magnified image (100,000 times magnification) showing a metal injected carbonate fossil in Posidonia Shale. The bright part is the metal which indicates the connected porosity. Width of the picture is 3 µm, see Klaver et al., (2016, http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.coal.2016.03.003) for
Summary Physical porosity is a crucial property in shales as it controls the storage capacity to a large extent and forms the transport system. Imaging the visible pore space, the associated mineralogy, and organic matter provide insight into the relevant
