I’m experimenting with contrast stretching for BSE images. I think it might be useful to bring detail out of the 16-bit images, though it makes it more confusing to identify phases based on Z contrast (as linearity was compromised to bin the output 8-bit data into 256 percentile bins). I think a stretched and color-mapped BSE image would be useful in combination with X-ray overlays (which I have a student working on now).
Yesterday was abstract submission day for LPSC, always among the most exciting and stressful days on the calendar. Our group has a great set of abstracts, read them here.
Jeff talks about SSERVI and water on the Moon — a great interview!
A very nice story about our SSERVI research, led by Jeff Gillis-Davis, written by Eli Chen at NPR. We’re very excited for this work!
Thanks to Lionel for creating our new logo:
Big News! Jeff Gillis-Davis will lead a Solar System Exploration and Research Virtual Institute to study water and space-weathering processes on the Moon and other bodies in the Solar System. We’re all very excited about this new research direction, and all the amazing collaborations that will come from it. We also have the best name: “ICE Five-O”.
It’s been a very exciting week around here! The news roundup…
