Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) is a bitmap image format that was introduced by CompuServe in 1987 and has since come into widespread usage on the World Wide Web due to its wide support and portability.

Examples

Snow, from its fall until its full melting, undergoes a structural metamorphism governed by local temperature and humidity fields. Among them, the isothermal metamorphism seems the most accessible to modeling. In this work, we tried to simulate the microstructural transformations of a dry snow sample, placed in isothermal conditions, near 0 degree C. In these conditions, the vapor pressure of water is high: the metamorphism can be considered, in first approximation, as fully curvature-driven. A simple numerical model was implemented on this basis and applied to simulated data and 3-D images from X-ray microtomography.
