Investigating the Volume and Structure of Porosity in Fractured and Unfractured Rock from the Newberry Volcano, Oregon: An Evaluation and Comparison of Two- and Three- Dimensional Methods

Porosity is a fundamental characteristic of rock critical to its mechanical and hydrologic behavior, yet a study of the open and accumulated healed porosity of nine core samples from Newberry Volcano shows that different measurement methods produce significantly different estimates of pore volume and structure. This study compares traditional 2D point count, petrographic image analysis, and 3D x-ray Micro Computed Tomography (micro CT) measurement of porosity primarily derived from fracture slip and dilation. The set...
