Hyperspectral imaging for the characterization of athabasca oil sands drill core

Abstract

Accurately logging oil sands core is a challenging process because sedimentary and biogenic features are difficult to see in bitumen-saturated strata. A suite of oil sands core was scanned using the SisuROCK hyperspectral imaging system. Analysis of the spectral imagery revealed that in the shortwave infrared we can “see through” thin bitumen at the surface… (More)
