Trondheim: Workshop on X-ray micro-tomography of porous ice media

Thursday, 22nd June 2017
Norwegian University for Science and Technology, Institute for Civil and Environmental Engineering (NTNU-IBM)
Trondheim, Norway

A workshop on X-ray micro-tomography (XRT) of porous Ice Media will be hold in Trondheim to gather actors from different research and industry fields that work with this technique to explore porous media containing ice and snow. The goal is to stimulate a discussion on similarities between porous ice media (e.g. snow and firn, sea ice, soil, rocks, building, food) and on challenges that X-ray cryo-tomography of ice media involves. Examples are temperature control prior to and during imaging, trade-off between spatial resolution and sample size, physical property evaluation from 3-d images, upscaling of properties to larger scales, enhancement of contrast between ice, fat/oil and impurities, in situ studies of ice freezing and metamorphosis, synchrotron-based XRT at high spatial and temporal resolution and enhanced contrast. Numerical modelling contributions related to 3d imaging of porous ice media are also welcome. The workshop will include a short visit to the IBM-NTNU ice lab facilities and the CT-lab of the Norwegian Centre for X-ray Diffraction, Scattering and Imaging (RECX).

Time and location:

21st - Arrival in Trondheim
22th - 09:00-18:00 Whole day workshop with presentations; Evening dinner afterwards
23rd - 09:00-11:00 Possibility for short visit of ice and RECX CT laboratories at NTNU

Location: Scandic Lerkendal (22nd), IBM-NTNU and RECX (23rd)

Important notes and application:
The workshop, including meals and dinner on the 22nd, is free of charge.
The workshop is limited to 20-25 participants, most expected to give a 20-30 minutes presentation.

Participants may get up to 50% of documented travel and hotel costs refunded.
