We present spatial distributions for pore path length and coordination number, pore throat size and nodal pore volume obtained for a 1.53 mm3 volume of 12.1% porosity Fontainebleau sandstone. The sandstone was imaged using Synchrotron X-Ray computed microtomography at 6 micron resolution. The spatial distributions were computed based upon three dimensional medial axis analysis of the void space in the image. We also present vesicle size and vesicle-vesicle contact surface area distributions for a 1.36 mm length of a 6.36 mm diameter core of basalt from a vesiculated lava flow imaged at 20 micron resolution.
