The current version of the website only displays a fraction of the available database. The website is gradually further populated.
The vast majority of the nannofossil photos (Light Microscope-LM) were taken at the same magnification with an Olympus DP73 camera at a resolution of 1600x1200; the images were saved in tiff & jpg format using the Olympus Stream Basic software. The photos have not been improved using any image enhancement software during or after they were captured. All photos were montaged in the positions they were taken without rotation. Whenever possible, the images were captured and presented in polarised light with or without inserting a gypsum plate (-45°, 0° and +45°) in phase contrast and bright field.
