Description

The subject of study is a Mammut americanum (American Mastodon) tusk. The tusk is currently damaged and in need of repair. To better understand the tusk and the preservation materials previously used, fluorescence spectrometry was used to make a surface map of the tusk. This data will be useful to the conservationists as they plan the care and restoration of the tusk.
