Abstract - Summary 
(short description):
The aim of the work was to study the morphology of polycrystalline sediment in areas of the kinetic temperature anomalies.
The experiments were performed in the temperature range 46.0-50.1 C in temperature points corresponding to the most manifest extremes of the kinetic curve. Copper deposition was carried out in a solution of copper sulfate with a given concentration. Electrochemical copper deposit has been studied ex-situ by atomic force microscopy. Analysis of copper deposit was conducted on a quantitative level.
Results of statistical analysis of images showed that the quantitative characteristics of the morphology of the electrochemical deposit of copper with a temperature change is not monotonic and consistent with the kinetics of crystallization of copper.
This technique can be used during the reconstruction of genetic conditions for mineralization, as well as serve as a theoretical basis for a precision temperature reference points.
