Code for "Deriving coral skeletal density from computed tomography (CT): effects of scan and reconstruction settings"

  • Thomas DeCarlo (Creator)



This script computes the mean Hounsfield Units (HU), density, and volume from a computed tomography (CT) scan of a block of Porites coral skeleton as described in DeCarlo (2017). This is the sample scanned with all of the same settings as the "standards", and the CT-derived density accurately matches the density determined from mass a volume. The analysis is performed using the software coralCT (including MATLAB code attached here) from DeCarlo and Cohen (2017) (available at
