We define the convex core of a finite Borel measure Q on ℝd as the intersection of all convex Borel sets C with Q(C) = Q(ℝd). It consists exactly of means of probability measures dominated by Q. Geometric and measure-theoretic properties of convex cores are studied, including behaviour under certain operations on measures. Convex cores are characterized as those convex sets that have at most countable number of faces.
