Rocks are heterogeneous on all length scales. We will show how, using new detector options for ZEISS Xradia Versa XRM, we can properly capture and characterize this heterogeneity by using macroscopic lithological classification algorithms and subsampling. This allows for small sub-samples to be taken from each lithology for in situ testing, and measurements of properties such as wettability and residual saturation to be upscaled to the full core scale.
