Finalization of the Confocal Laser Scanning Microscopy (CLSM) working group

By:  and 



A working group in Commission II to investigate applications of confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) for organic petrology investigations has finalized with publication of the manuscript “Characterization of bituminite in Kimmeridge Clay by confocal laser scanning and atomic force microscopy” in the International Journal of Coal Geology. The manuscript is available via Open Access from and also from the Commission II working group (WG) webpage A report detailing the full history and results from the WG also is available from the Commission II WG webpage. The working group investigated the application of CLSM to an organic-rich (44 wt.% TOC), thermally immature sample (VRo 0.42%) of the Kimmeridge Clay Formation. CLSM imaging and spectroscopy and atomic force microscopy (AFM) were used to characterize bituminite.
