Hi,

Just wondering if anyone has any experience interpreting SEM images of chalk? The cocoliths are unmistakable, although there are some other fragments I can't identify. Will post pictures if anyone reckons they can help. Suggestions on recrystallisation amount would also be helpful, but not essential :).

Cheers

C

ps. scale varies from 5um to 50um

A couple members come to mind who might be able to help, but all the rest of us would love to see and learn! :)

Thanks for indulging me :)

The coccoliths are pretty amazing, but I sure can't even hazard a guess on the other specimens.

I will stand by hoping that someone here can weigh in (perchance to learn)!
