A workshop on X-ray micro-tomography (XRT) of porous Ice Media will be held in Trondheim, Norway on 22 June 2017 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).
