The Specim SisuROCK is an integrated, turnkey hyperspectral-imaging scanner specifically designed to scan drill core trays rapidly. It can currently house up to three different hyperspectral cameras of different geologically relevant wavelength ranges, including a thermal LWIR imager. The scanner is fast, and scan rates of up to 200-core boxes/shift are reported. These systems enable geological digitization of mineralogy, textures, and their distributions and associations through spectral imaging.
This is a part of 2022 Geologic repositories rock sample digitization webinar series organized by Alaska Geologic Materials Center, February 23 – June 8, 2022, Anchorage, Alaska.
