Multispectral imaging of carbonized documents has been shown to be an effective diagnostic tool as well as providing for spectral analysis and enhancement. The Herculaneum scroll diagnostic data showed that sufficient contrast could be obtained with an image at a single wavelength in the near infrared. On the other hand, the Petra scroll multispectral data demonstrates the analytical and enhancement capabilities provided by this form of document conservation and archiving
