[MIS20-P02] High precision X-ray CT morphometry of microfossils for scientific validations
Keywords:Microfossils, Microfocus X-ray CT, 3D morphometry, Three dimensional models
The materials used in this study were microfossils from deep-sea sediments collected by the Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP) and Ocean Drilling Project (ODP) and other materials in modern ocean. So far, we already achieved the 3D microtomography for some species on foraminifers, radiolarians, diatoms and pteropods from each geological ages. In this presentation, we will show the reconstructed 3D images of the above specimens and discuss about the essentials for scientific validation on micropaleontological studies. In addition, we will discuss about 3D printing models by using the above 3D data for educational purposes.
