Abstract:
This dissertation describes the design and implementation of a computer vision based varve image analysis system. The primary issues covered are software engineering design, varve image calibrations, varve image enhancement, varve Dynamic Spatial Warping (DSW) profile generation, varve core image registration, varve identification, boundary identification and varve thickness measurement. A varve DSW matching algorithm is described to generate DSW profile and register two core images. Wavelet Multiple Resolution Analysis (MRA) is also used to do the core image registrations. By allowing an analyst to concentrate on other research work while the VARVES software analyzes a sample, much of the tedious varve analysis work is reduced, and potentially increasing the productivity. Additionally, by using new computer vision techniques, VARVES system is able to do some varve analysis which was impossible handled manually.
