abstract
Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) will enable detailed petrographic study of ancient pottery. In sedimentology, surface textures of sand grains, heavy mineral weathering, clay mineralogy and fine sedimentation structures will be studied. SEM can also be used in micropaleontology and in archeozoology. SEM is needed for completing the soil mineralogical classification, weathering of natural construction materials, and for the study of submicroscopic clay for soil fabrics.
