Program concept by Sunny Remmy
(Porosity Calculator for Digital Thin Section Photomicrograph; Water Management for Mining - Alaska Miners Association 2008 Annual Convention)
The program also facilitates the identification of minerals such as zircons on a grain mount from a back-scatter image. The image to the right is a screenshot from the program that shows a mount with only a few zircons that have been colored purple after clicking on a standard. The resulting image could then be used to find zircons during an analytical session.
To run the program you must be connected to the Internet and have a computer with Java 1.5 or higher. To run the program you must have suitable images on your local computer. You can save the following sample image as a test.
Click on the "Launch" icon to run the program.
You may be warned that the application's digital signature cannot be verified. This is not due to any hacking attempt but simply because we self-signed the application (i.e. we did not purchase a Java code signing certificate). To run the program, run the "Java" application in your control panel/system preferences. Under "Security" click on "Edit Site List" button in the Exception Site List. Enter "http://www.math.uaa.alaska.edu". You should now be able to run the applet, although you will have to click the button to acknowledge the lowered level of security.
