Abstract

X-ray Computed Tomography is a non-destructive technique to resolve internal structures and their three-dimensional visualisation. Computed Tomography presents a wide spectrum of application in earth sciences and proves useful to unravel the architecture of sedimentary cores, including those containing cold-water corals. In particular the application of Computed Tomography not only discloses the presence of corals in the core and facilitates taxonomic identification up to species-level, but elucidates also their three-dimensional distribution and taphonomic aspects. The advantages offered by Computed Tomography-scan are continuously growing and is becoming a standard method of analysis for cold-water coral-bearing cores studies.
