An ancient civilization, known as early as 2000 B.C. The Persian Empire was founded by Cyrus the Great (550-529 B.C.) and for 200 years, from 550 to 331 B.C., the Persians ruled the ancient world from India to Egypt. The territory west of India was called Persis by the Greeks who later called the entire empire Persia. In 331 B.C. the Persian wars against the Greeks ended disastrously under the counterattacks by Alexander the Great. The name Persia in modern times for the modern country was changed to Iran in 1935.

Potential effects of gas hydrate on human welfare. (1/257)

For almost 30 years. serious interest has been directed toward natural gas hydrate, a crystalline solid composed of water and methane, as a potential (i) energy resource, (ii) factor in global climate change, and (iii) submarine geohazard. Although each of these issues can affect human welfare, only (iii) is considered to be of immediate importance. Assessments of gas hydrate as an energy resource have often been overly optimistic, based in part on its very high methane content and on its worldwide occurrence in continental margins. Although these attributes are attractive, geologic settings, reservoir properties, and phase-equilibria considerations diminish the energy resource potential of natural gas hydrate. The possible role of gas hydrate in global climate change has been often overstated. Although methane is a "greenhouse" gas in the atmosphere, much methane from dissociated gas hydrate may never reach the atmosphere, but rather may be converted to carbon dioxide and sequestered by the hydrosphere/biosphere before reaching the atmosphere. Thus, methane from gas hydrate may have little opportunity to affect global climate change. However, submarine geohazards (such as sediment instabilities and slope failures on local and regional scales, leading to debris flows, slumps, slides, and possible tsunamis) caused by gas-hydrate dissociation are of immediate and increasing importance as humankind moves to exploit seabed resources in ever-deepening waters of coastal oceans. The vulnerability of gas hydrate to temperature and sea level changes enhances the instability of deep-water oceanic sediments, and thus human activities and installations in this setting can be affected.  (+info)

Biochemical evolution III: polymerization on organophilic silica-rich surfaces, crystal-chemical modeling, formation of first cells, and geological clues. (2/257)

Catalysis at organophilic silica-rich surfaces of zeolites and feldspars might generate replicating biopolymers from simple chemicals supplied by meteorites, volcanic gases, and other geological sources. Crystal-chemical modeling yielded packings for amino acids neatly encapsulated in 10-ring channels of the molecular sieve silicalite-ZSM-5-(mutinaite). Calculation of binding and activation energies for catalytic assembly into polymers is progressing for a chemical composition with one catalytic Al-OH site per 25 neutral Si tetrahedral sites. Internal channel intersections and external terminations provide special stereochemical features suitable for complex organic species. Polymer migration along nano/micrometer channels of ancient weathered feldspars, plus exploitation of phosphorus and various transition metals in entrapped apatite and other microminerals, might have generated complexes of replicating catalytic biomolecules, leading to primitive cellular organisms. The first cell wall might have been an internal mineral surface, from which the cell developed a protective biological cap emerging into a nutrient-rich "soup." Ultimately, the biological cap might have expanded into a complete cell wall, allowing mobility and colonization of energy-rich challenging environments. Electron microscopy of honeycomb channels inside weathered feldspars of the Shap granite (northwest England) has revealed modern bacteria, perhaps indicative of Archean ones. All known early rocks were metamorphosed too highly during geologic time to permit simple survival of large-pore zeolites, honeycombed feldspar, and encapsulated species. Possible microscopic clues to the proposed mineral adsorbents/catalysts are discussed for planning of systematic study of black cherts from weakly metamorphosed Archaean sediments.  (+info)

Replicated evolution of trophic specializations in an endemic cichlid fish lineage from Lake Tanganyika. (3/257)

The current phylogenetic hypothesis for the endemic Lake Tanganyika cichlid fishes of the tribe Eretmodini is based solely on morphology and suggests that more complex trophic morphologies derived only once from a less specialized ancestral condition. A molecular phylogeny of eretmodine cichlids based on partial mitochondrial DNA cytochrome b and control-region sequences was used to reconstruct the evolutionary sequence of trophic adaptations and to test alternative models of morphological divergence. The six mitochondrial lineages found disagree with the current taxonomy and the morphology-based phylogeny. Mitochondrial lineages with similar trophic morphologies are not grouped monophyletically but are typically more closely related to lineages with different trophic phenotypes currently assigned to other genera. Our results indicate multiple independent origins of similar trophic specializations in these cichlids. A pattern of repeated divergent morphological evolution becomes apparent when the phylogeography of the mitochondrial haplotypes is analyzed in the context of the geological and paleoclimatological history of Lake Tanganyika. In more than one instance within Lake Tanganyika, similar morphological divergence of dentitional traits occurred in sympatric species pairs. Possibly, resource-based divergent selective regimes led to resource partitioning and brought about similar trophic morphologies independently and repeatedly.  (+info)

Climate change as a regulator of tectonics on Venus. (4/257)

Tectonics, volcanism, and climate on Venus may be strongly coupled. Large excursions in surface temperature predicted to follow a global or near-global volcanic event diffuse into the interior and introduce thermal stresses of a magnitude sufficient to influence widespread tectonic deformation. This sequence of events accounts for the timing and many of the characteristics of deformation in the ridged plains of Venus, the most widely preserved volcanic terrain on the planet.  (+info)

A habitat for psychrophiles in deep Antarctic ice. (5/257)

Microbes, some of which may be viable, have been found in ice cores drilled at Vostok Station at depths down to approximately 3,600 m, close to the surface of the huge subglacial Lake Vostok. Two types of ice have been found. The upper 3,500 m comprises glacial ice containing traces of nutrients of aeolian origin including sulfuric acid, nitric acid, methanosulfonic acid (MSA), formic acid, sea salts, and mineral grains. Ice below approximately 3,500 m comprises refrozen water from Lake Vostok, accreted to the bottom of the glacial ice. Nutrients in the accretion ice include salts and dissolved organic carbon. There is great interest in searching for living microbes and especially for new species in deepest Antarctic ice. I propose a habitat consisting of interconnected liquid veins along three-grain boundaries in ice in which psychrophilic bacteria can move and obtain energy and carbon from ions in solution. In the accretion ice, with an age of a few 10(4) years and a temperature a few degrees below freezing, the carbon and energy sources in the veins can maintain significant numbers of cells per cubic centimeter that are metabolizing but not multiplying. In the 4 x 10(5)-year-old colder glacial ice, at least 1 cell per cm(3) in acid veins can be maintained. With fluorescence microscopy tuned to detect NADH in live organisms, motile bacteria could be detected by direct scanning of the veins in ice samples.  (+info)

Life: past, present and future. (6/257)

Molecular methods of taxonomy and phylogeny have changed the way in which life on earth is viewed; they have allowed us to transition from a eukaryote-centric (five-kingdoms) view of the planet to one that is peculiarly prokarote-centric, containing three kingdoms, two of which are prokaryotic unicells. These prokaryotes are distinguished from their eukaryotic counterparts by their toughness, tenacity and metabolic diversity. Realization of these features has, in many ways, changed the way we feel about life on earth, about the nature of life past and about the possibility of finding life elsewhere. In essence, the limits of life on this planet have expanded to such a degree that our thoughts of both past and future life have been altered. The abilities of prokaryotes to withstand many extreme conditions has led to the term extremophiles, used to describe the organisms that thrive under conditions thought just a few years ago, to be inconsistent with life. Perhaps the most extensive adaptation to extreme conditions, however, is represented by the ability of many bacteria to survive nutrient conditions not compatible with eukaryotic life. Prokaryotes have evolved to use nearly every redox couple that is in abundance on earth, filling the metabolic niches left behind by the oxygen-using, carbon-eating eukaryotes. This metabolic plasticity leads to a common feature in physically stratified environments of layered microbial communities, chemical indicators of the metabolic diversity of the prokaryotes. Such 'metabolic extremophily' forms a backdrop by which we can view the energy flow of life on this planet, think about what the evolutionary past of the planet might have been, and plan ways to look for life elsewhere, using the knowledge of energy flow on earth.  (+info)

Reduction of Fe(III), Mn(IV), and toxic metals at 100 degrees C by Pyrobaculum islandicum. (7/257)

It has recently been noted that a diversity of hyperthermophilic microorganisms have the ability to reduce Fe(III) with hydrogen as the electron donor, but the reduction of Fe(III) or other metals by these organisms has not been previously examined in detail. When Pyrobaculum islandicum was grown at 100 degrees C in a medium with hydrogen as the electron donor and Fe(III)-citrate as the electron acceptor, the increase in cell numbers of P. islandicum per mole of Fe(III) reduced was found to be ca. 10-fold higher than previously reported. Poorly crystalline Fe(III) oxide could also serve as the electron acceptor for growth on hydrogen. The stoichiometry of hydrogen uptake and Fe(III) oxide reduction was consistent with the oxidation of 1 mol of hydrogen resulting in the reduction of 2 mol of Fe(III). The poorly crystalline Fe(III) oxide was reduced to extracellular magnetite. P. islandicum could not effectively reduce the crystalline Fe(III) oxide minerals goethite and hematite. In addition to using hydrogen as an electron donor for Fe(III) reduction, P. islandicum grew via Fe(III) reduction in media in which peptone and yeast extract served as potential electron donors. The closely related species P. aerophilum grew via Fe(III) reduction in a similar complex medium. Cell suspensions of P. islandicum reduced the following metals with hydrogen as the electron donor: U(VI), Tc(VII), Cr(VI), Co(III), and Mn(IV). The reduction of these metals was dependent upon the presence of cells and hydrogen. The metalloids arsenate and selenate were not reduced. U(VI) was reduced to the insoluble U(IV) mineral uraninite, which was extracellular. Tc(VII) was reduced to insoluble Tc(IV) or Tc(V). Cr(VI) was reduced to the less toxic, less soluble Cr(III). Co(III) was reduced to Co(II). Mn(IV) was reduced to Mn(II) with the formation of manganese carbonate. These results demonstrate that biological reduction may contribute to the speciation of metals in hydrothermal environments and could account for such phenomena as magnetite accumulation and the formation of uranium deposits at ca. 100 degrees C. Reduction of toxic metals with hyperthermophilic microorganisms or their enzymes might be applied to the remediation of metal-contaminated waters or waste streams.  (+info)

Shapes of river networks and leaves: are they statistically similar? (8/257)

The structure of river networks is compared with the vein structure of leaves. The two structures are visually similar at the smaller scales. The statistics of branching and side branching are nearly identical. The branching structure of diffusion-limited aggregation clusters is also similar and can provide an explanation for the structure of river networks. The origin of the self-similar branching and side branching of the vein structure in leaves is not clear but it appears to be an optimal network in terms of transporting nutrients to all parts of the leaf with the least total resistance.  (+info)

ABSTRACT: The Commensurability of Environmental Geology and Petroleum Geology. Ralph J. Argen. Environmental geology and petroleum geology are practical applications of pure geology. These two applied sciences differ with respect to their philosophical and ethical mandates. A good petroleum geologist finds hydrocarbons, but the role of a good environmental geologist is not well defined. If the good environmental geologists role is not simply to protect the environment from the good petroleum geologist, then how do the mandates of these geologists differ, yet remain compatible?. If the mandate of a good environmental geologist were to protect every natural resource from all managed use, then the good environmental geologist and the good petroleum geologist would forever be at war. This mandate provides no framework for agreement because it assumes the inherent worth of each natural resource is discoverable.. If the mandate of a good environmental geologist is to discover how to maximize the ...

The techniques used to model geology on sites often do not work well for linear routes where the positions of the boreholes are not conducive to generating usable triangulated surfaces. This class will discuss the techniques to employ when working with boreholes positioned along a length of proposed road or rail network. It will also examine the workflow of using geotechnical profile views to sketch geology interpretation, which can then be incorporated back into the strata surfaces, letting the user visualize and model the subsurface geology. The class will step through the process of creating geotechnical profiles, and sketching and updating profiles from which 3D feature lines are created; these are then incorporated as breaklines back into the AutoCAD Civil 3D surfaces, producing usable triangulated surfaces, enabling the geology subsurface to be modeled and visualized on linear routes.

Mike Perfit spends much of his time deep beneath the surface of the ocean investigating deep-sea volcanoes and the spreading of the Earths tectonic plates. He specializes in the igneous geology and volcanology of ridge crests and seamounts. He uses that and his training in geochemistry and marine geology to study the Earths last great frontier; the abyssal depths of the ocean. He has participated in over 20 major oceanographic cruises to places as distant as Papua New Guinea and has had over 30 dives in the manned submersible ALVIN to depths greater than 12,000 feet. During the last decade, he and his colleagues have documented the first recorded volcanic eruptions at mid-ocean ridges using ALVIN and remotely operated vehicles (ROVs). He focuses on interdisciplinary aspects of marine geology to help address some of the fundamental problems such as the development of hydrothermal vent communities at abyssal depths and the quantification of the elemental and thermal fluxes to the oceans that ...

The fields of geology at Charles University have a long and rich tradition that extends far back into the history of the university. At the time of establishment of the Faculty of Science in 1920, the predecessor of the Section of Geology was the newly established Institute of Mineralogy and Petrography, which was originally headed by the internationally renowned Professor of Mineralogy, František Slavík, who was later the Rector of Charles University. The further development and character of the fields of the geological sciences were consistently formed by important scientific and pedagogical personages, who were frequently graduates of the geology departments at the Faculty of Science. At random, we can mention Ivo Chlupáč (geologist and paleontologist) and Petr Jakeš (geologist, geochemist and writer of science articles for the public).. ...
Geology is like a puzzle you have to figure out, alumna Chelsea Agee says where the finished piece if youre lucky is a more complete picture of the history of the earth. Its fascinating because you are trying to piece together the history of the earth using evidence found in rocks and thats why its like a puzzle. But those pieces dont come together just through textbooks and lectures, which is a philosophy the faculty in the Geology Department not only understands but practices. And that was the best part of being in the department.. They really push you to do the extras, Agee says. We did a lot of field trips, that was the most exciting thing. We went all over New England, we went out west, we studied beach deposits on the coast of New Hampshire.. For two weeks in Arizona, Nevada, and California students visited the Grand Canyon, Meteor Crater, and Death Valley National Park and, we got to see firsthand a lot of the geology that we had studied, the different rock sites and the ...
Some modern scholars, such as Fielding H. Garrison, are of the opinion that the origin of the science of geology can be traced to Persia after the Muslim conquests had come to an end.[55] Abu al-Rayhan al-Biruni (973-1048 CE) was one of the earliest Persian geologists, whose works included the earliest writings on the geology of India, hypothesizing that the Indian subcontinent was once a sea.[56] Drawing from Greek and Indian scientific literature that were not destroyed by the Muslim conquests, the Persian scholar Ibn Sina (Avicenna, 981-1037) proposed detailed explanations for the formation of mountains, the origin of earthquakes, and other topics central to modern geology, which provided an essential foundation for the later development of the science.[57][58] In China, the polymath Shen Kuo (1031-1095) formulated a hypothesis for the process of land formation: based on his observation of fossil animal shells in a geological stratum in a mountain hundreds of miles from the ocean, he inferred ...
Geological studies at MNA began with the founding of the museum in 1929. Museum founder and Director Dr. Harold S. Colton championed all research in natural history, including geology. Colton and his friend Lionel F. Major Brady established the tradition of geological research that continues today. Colton worked tirelessly on Sunset Crater and its preservation while Brady focused on the paleontology of the southern Colorado Plateau. Among other notable accomplishments, Brady collected the remarkable skeleton of a ground sloth that became a central item in the early exhibits maintained by the museum..

This course approaches Earth history by examining the geology of places rather than by taking a process approach. It is designed for all interested undergraduates at the University of Michigan. The course format consists of three lectures each week and one two-hour demonstration-laboratory period, for four credits. Lecture material deals with the geologic history of selected national parks and monuments, which are chosen and scheduled so that those in which the oldest rocks are exposed (thus relating to the earliest portions of Earth history) are covered first. In so doing, we cover Earth history in a temporal progression, but do so by discussing different geographic areas. The demonstration-laboratory portion of the course will give you first-hand experience with rocks, minerals, and fossils; and an opportunity to discuss these in small groups..

As the science that considers the origin and evolution of the earth, Geology provides students with an understanding of what is known about the earth and how we know it, how the earth works and why we think it behaves as it does. In particular this course focuses upon the earth as an evolving and dynamic system where change is driven by energy generated within the earth. Concepts to be covered are: the structure of the earths interior, isostasy, deep time, the origin and nature of the magnetic field, plate tectonics, the origin and evolution of mountain belts, and ocean basins and the growth of the continents over time. In this context, Geology 111 considers a diverse range of topics such as the Appalachian mountain belt, the Hawaiian Islands, Yellowstone Park, the consequences of seismicity, faulting, meteorite impact, and volcanism on the earths inhabitants, and the sources and limitations of mineral and energy resources. This is a science course designed for all students of the College. ...
For the Geology element of the course, you will look at rocks, minerals and fossils, how they were formed, how they might have been deformed or altered over geological time and what they can tell us about the history of the Earth and its past environments. It also covers geological processes such as earthquakes, volcanoes and plate tectonics, and how these processes produce different geological materials. Geology is a practical subject with applied problem-solving laboratory classes and field courses where you will learn how to interpret and map geological features, and explore for future geological resources. Field course transport and accommodation costs are covered by the University.. The Human Biology element of this course is ideal if youre interested in biology but are looking for a particular focus on the human body and how weve adapted to our environment.

DescriptionGeology and Engineering on the Severnside Levels The Western Regional Group is pleased to invite Dr Alan Cattell. Alan is a Principal Geotechnical Engineer and Associate Director at Structural Soils Ltd. Alan will be here to share his knowledge about the ground conditions and engineering considerations of the Severnside Levels. The geology and engineering properties of the estuarine alluvium of the Severnside Levels were investigated and reported on in the 1960s to 1980s, spurred by the construction of the M5, culminating in Hawkins (1984) observations on engineering consequences of the geology. Structural Soils have carried out many site investigations on the Severnside Levels in subsequent years, which have included ,140 boreholes, most of which reached bedrock, and many extended into bedrock by rotary coring. Many investigations include CPT testing. Based on these, maps are presented showing features such as the depth to bedrock, buried cliff lines, the distribution of sands with ...
The deep wilderness and rugged peaks of the North Cascade Range are only a few hours drive from the metropoli of Washington and British Columbia. The average visitor to the range experiences a bit of Alaska and the Alps for the price of a weekend trip. The spectacular scenery of these mountains is carved from equally spectacular geology. The steep cliffs, horrendous brush, and long trails that guard North Cascade peaks have their geologic counterparts, for an understanding of the geology of the range can be as difficult to gain as any North Cascade summit. Scientists have spent many decades puzzling out some of the geologic history of the range. We invite you to share what we and others have learned.

By Jason McIntosh. Modelling multiple thin intersecting veins in 3D can be an arduous task, luckily the Leapfrog vein modelling tool is perfect for visualising thin intersecting vein systems. Complex vein systems are common in many geological settings, but for the purpose of this blog Im going to focus on shear zone vein systems. So bear with me as I attempt to sum up the characteristics of metalliferous shear zone ore deposits and how they can be modelled using Leapfrog Geo in an easily digestible blog.. A shear zone is a discontinuity surface in the Earths crust and upper mantle. Depending on the characteristics of the shear zone genesis and later regional tectonics, shear zones can form economic gold, silver, copper, lead, zinc and molybdenum deposits. However, the formation of large mineral deposits is dependent on a number of factors.. Shear zones form in brittle/ductile transition zones as metamorphic facies are uplifted during orogenic collisions. They are mineralized throughout ...

Geology is all about sediments, minerals, rocks, and the processes, such as running water, that shape the Earths surface. When coupled with climate and elevation, geology -- the composition and distribution of Earth material -- exerts control over the makeup of biological communities, including those that inhabit riparian zones. The Verde riparian zone is a greenbelt of desert willow, Arizona ash, boxelder, red willow, cottonwood, sycamore, and the occasional tamarisk, and is home to some of the finest birdwatching in the Southwestern U.S. Populations of great blue herons, great egrets, snowy egrets, white-faced ibis, green-backed herons, violet green swallows, white throated swifts, southwestern willow flycatchers, bald eagles, peregrine falcons, ospreys, and a wide variety of hawks and songbirds feed and nest along the Verde and its tributaries.

So it is easy to see that flood geology is at odds with most of the observations of North American geology. EZ is one model that has been proposed to reconcile these observations with the flood model, but EZ only works if inappropriate ad hoc modifications are made to overcome problems such as those posed by the need to transport ecological communities over large distances and subsequently deposit them mostly intact.. Sedimentary, my dear Watson. Flood geologists have recognized several other problems for the EZ model. For example, one would expect serious erosion and transport of sediment in the worldwide flood. Acknowledging that most present-day sediment cover is found on the cratons of the continents and that the surrounding ocean basins have very little sediment contained within them, Kurt Wise and others (1994) concede that, if the Flood had occurred, the continental rock should have been eroded and subsequently deposited as sediments in the ocean basins - which is clearly not the case. ...

This paper addresses the achievements in understanding the hydrogeological conditions in the low permeability claystone formation of the Opalinus Clay at the Mont Terri Rock Laboratory. The synthesis work consisted of (i) an assessment of clay-specific artifacts which may affect the interpretation of hydraulic tests, (ii) a survey of hydraulic rock properties such as hydraulic conductivity and storage coefficient, and (iii) an assessment of the governing flow laws and definition of hydrogeological units and flow boundaries on the site scale. Drawing on the broad hydrogeological data base, confidence is gained in the hydraulic barrier function of the Opalinus Clay, which effectively prevents groundwater flow between the over- and underlying aquifer systems ...
Paul Pinet teaches geology, oceanography, and environmental studies courses at Colgate University, located in central New York State. He earned B.A. and M.S. degrees in geology from the University of New Hampshire and the University of Massachusetts, respectively, and a PhD in oceanography from the University of Rhode Island. His research has been focused on the geology of continental margins, coastal bluff erosion, estuarine sedimentation, and more recently on the philosophical dimensions of deep time. At the moment, he is developing long-term (millennia) conservation strategies for barrier islands in response to rising sea level and for mitigating the ongoing extinction event in New England and its ocean. Pinet spent summers during much of his adult life either climbing mountains around the world or cruising on his small, gaff-headed catboat (Taillefer) off the New England coast. Though an oceanographer, Pinet admits that he fears water more than high, avalanche-prone moutains. At the moment, ...
Evidence from the Isua Accretionary complex suggest that plate tectonics had taken place 0.7-0.8 G. yr. after the formation of Earth, signature Sulphur isotopes were more prominent 2.5 Ga ago, Blueschists were recorded to yield at an age of 176.6 Ma. These results are indicative that the beginning of plate tectonics was in fact in the Archean era, however, the ages of the different rocks and complexes differ, making it very difficult to determine a single age at which the tectonics started. Furthermore, it should be reiterated that these results were obtained from the oldest specimen of rock found, not the oldest rock available and uplift and subsidence make it harder to obtain older rock. Moreover, in 2006 the Geologic society of America Penrose had a vote to decide when the scientists thought plate tectonics had begun. It was decided by the second vote that the median answer was that it took place 3.0 to 3.5 Ga ago, however the key point here is that voting is not an accurate representation of ...
This thesis is the first to the authors knowledge to conduct a holistic investigation of the physical, chemical and microbial properties of a rock glacier. The Lone Peak Rock Glacier (LPRG) is located in the Madison Range of southwest Montana on Big Sky Resort property. This thesis focuses on three scales of investigation: regional, landform, and micro. Regional-scale analysis assessed the role of geology and topography as factors in determining rock-glacier distribution in SW Montana above 2000m. Rock glaciers across alpine landscapes in southwest Montana are preferentially distributed according to rock type, with more rock glaciers occurring in intrusive, foliated intrusive and metamorphic catchments relative to the areal proportion of these rock types than in extrusive and sedimentary catchments. This preferential distribution according to catchment geology is likely due to the affect that geology has on topography and provision of talus. Landform-scale analysis focuses on internal ...
Tennessee is a narrow state over 500 miles long, with its long axis running east-west across the grain of the geology. Most of the geological provinces of the east-central United States are represented somewhere in Tennessee. Since geology exercises a controlling influence on topography, hydrology, mineral resources, and soil type and thickness, which in turn affect the activities of humankind, it has strongly influenced the history and development of the state.. Tennessee consists of three grand divisions which have been recognized from the earliest days of settlement and simply called East, Middle, and West Tennessee. Each of the grand divisions is divisible into three geologic zones, all with differences in basic geology that distinguish them from each other and cause some areas to resemble parts of neighboring states more than adjacent parts of Tennessee.. East Tennessee includes the Unaka, or Great Smoky, Mountains along the border with North Carolina, the Valley and Ridge Province (also ...
Petroleum deposits (primarily gas) in northeastern Mexico occur in two main basins, the Tertiary Burgos basin and the Mesozoic Sabinas basin. About 90 gas fields are present in the Burgos basin, which has undergone active exploration for the past 30-40 years. Production in this basin is from Oligocene and Eocene nearshore marine and deltaic sandstone reservoirs. Most of the fields are small to medium in size on faulted anticlinal or domal structures, some of which may be related to deep-seated salt intrusion. Cumulative production from these fields is about 4 trillion cubic feet gas and 100 million barrels condensate and oil. Since 1975, about 10 gas fields, some with large production rates, have been discovered in Cretaceous carbonate and Jurassic sandstone reservoirs in the Sabinas basin and adjacent Burro-Picachos platform areas. The Sabinas basin, which is in the early stages of exploration and development, may have potential for very large...
We consider the socially optimal use of solar geoengineering to manage climate change. Solar geoengineering can reduce damages from atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations, potentially more cheaply than reducing emissions. If so, optimal policy includes less abatement than recommended by models that ignore solar geoengineering, and the price of carbon is lower. Solar geoengineering reduces temperature but does not reduce atmospheric or ocean carbon concentrations, and that carbon may cause damages apart from temperature increases. Finally, uncertainty over climate change and solar geoengineering alters the optimal deployment of solar geoengineering. We explore these issues with an analytical model and a numerical simulation. The price of carbon is 30%-45% lower than the price recommended in a model without geoengineering, depending on the parameterizations of geoengineering costs and benefits. Carbon concentrations are higher but temperature is lower when allowing for solar geoengineering. The ...
The yield of bedrock wells in the fractured-bedrock aquifers of the Nashoba terrane and surrounding area, central and eastern Massachusetts, was investigated with analyses of existing data. Reported well yield was compiled for 7,287 wells from Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection and U.S. Geological Survey databases. Yield of these wells ranged from 0.04 to 625 gallons per minute. In a comparison with data from 103 supply wells, yield and specific capacity from aquifer tests were well correlated, indicating that reported well yield was a reasonable measure of aquifer characteristics in the study area. Statistically significant relations were determined between well yield and a number of cultural and hydrogeologic factors. Cultural variables included intended water use, well depth, year of construction, and method of yield measurement. Bedrock geology, topography, surficial geology, and proximity to surface waters were statistically significant hydrogeologic factors. Yield of wells was
This book highlights the appalling reality of the threat to the worlds growing population that is exposed to earthquakes, especially those concentrated in vulnerable megacities. The recent calamities of the earthquakes in Haiti and Nepal are simply foretastes of what is to come, unless decisive action is taken. It is written by someone perhaps uniquely qualified to do so: an earthquake scientist whose long and personal engagement with many of the cities he writes about is accompanied by an extremely well informed, up-to-date and widely respected grasp of his subject. It is written in an easy semi-populist, non-technical style that will make it accessible to non-specialists, but with the completely convincing authority and balance that accompanies an author who is utterly confident and secure in his knowledge. It is an impressive achievement to distil decades of global scientific effort into a compelling narrative and call to action ...
It has long been known that solid-state convection within Earths mantle should result in deformation of its surface (Pekeris, 1935), a phenomenon referred to as dynamic topography. This topography is relatively elusive: it is transient over time scales of 1-10 m.y., it occurs over spatial scales covering a few hundred to a few thousand kilometers, and its amplitude is on the order of 1 km at long wavelengths. This amplitude is small in comparison to the secular bimodal topography of Earth (the average elevation contrast between oceans and continents is ∼4.5 km), mostly because of thickness and density contrasts at crustal and lithospheric depths, that is modulated by tectonic processes, resulting in mountain belts up to several kilometers high.. To illustrate the effect of mantle flow on present-day topography (Fig. 1A), the residual topography (the non-isostatic part of topography that is thought to be of dynamic origin) proposed by Steinberger (2007) has been removed from observed ...
Mohamed Chlieh, the lead author of a new report, looked at the region during his postdoctoral studies at Caltech with Jean-Philippe Avouac, professor of geology and director of Caltechs Tectonics Observatory (TO) and Kerry Sieh, Sharp Professor of Geology. They found that in the time between great earthquakes, some portions of the fault zone locked up while others crept along steadily, and the portions that were locked in the past few decades coincided with portions that rupture to produce large-magnitude quakes. The correlation was especially strong for two temblors of magnitude 8.7 that struck the region in 1861 and again in 2005.. The study also reveals which part of the Sumatra megathrust is storing strain that will be released during future large earthquakes.. Earthquakes in Sumatra are the manifestation of a sudden release of strain that constantly builds as the plates beneath the Indian Ocean creeps steadily toward southeast Asia and dive into the subduction zone under the island. If the ...

Discussion. Depositional environment. The fissility and the fine nature (Grain size) of the Enugu Shale as indicated by the field data suggest that Enugu Shale was deposited below the wave base, accumulated in relatively low energy environment i.e in a distal to proximal lagoon (Amaral and Pryor, 1974). The presence of extraformational clast within the Enugu Shale indicates that there was fluvial influence during the period ofdeposition of Enugu Shale within the Anambra Basin (Tucker, 1996). The light grey colour of the shale shows that Enugu Shale was deposited on the surface of the basin where oxidation could take place (Dapple, 1974).. The fine medium grained sandstone, siltstone and fissile shale and Planolites burrows that dominates Mamu Formation succession as observed from sieve and field relationships suggests that the unit was deposited in an environment where there was little or no existence of tidal or wave action i.e quiet environment where low energy favoured deposition of fine - ...
Deep Earth: Physics and Chemistry of the Lower Mantle and Core highlights recent advances and the latest views of the deep Earth from theoretical, experimental, and observational approaches and offers insight into future research directions on the deep Earth. In recent years, we have just reached a stage where we can perform measurements at the conditions of the center part of the Earth using state-of-the-art techniques, and many reports on the physical and chemical properties of the deep Earth have come out very recently. Novel theoretical models have been complementary to this breakthrough. These new inputs enable us to compare directly with results of precise geophysical and geochemical observations.

Science is the thought process along with the data. But what is natural and what is social? What is science? Science, all science, the process of acquiring knowledge through experimentation. Science is a methodology used to understand our world. Natural sciences and social sciences are different only in what they learn. Natural Natural Sciences are sometimes called hard sciences. These include topics such as chemistry, physics, astronomy, biology, earth science, atmospheric science, materials science and oceanography. These fields all investigate the world and how it works. Chemistry is the study of matter. When you study chemistry, learn about what makes up the matter, atoms. You learn about the atomic structure and how molecules form and bonds. You learn how materials react and change. Geology is the study of planet Earth. This field studies soils, geology, minerals, rocks, gems, Plate tectonics and volcanoes, among other topics. Physics is the study of what composes the universe and how ...
Correlating Earths History - Lecture Notes by Paul R. Janke The following chronological summary highlights some of the scientists, experimenters, theologians and thinkers of the past and how their ideas have contributed to our understanding of Earths history. --- Herodotus (500 BC) observed that the Nile deposited silt during floods but believed most features were the result of sudden, violent processes. Aristotle (384-322 BC) recognized river deposits and realized that fossil seashells from rocks were similar to those found on the beach, indicating the fossils were once living animals. He deduced that the positions of land and sea had changed and thought these changes occurred over long periods of time. Theophrastus (374-287 BC) wrote a mineralogy book, Concerning Stones, which dominated thought through the middle ages. Unfortunately, he also suggested that fossils might not be the remains of once living animals. Eratosthenes (250 BC) calculated the circumference of the Earth by measuring ...

The Tizert Cu-Ag deposit is the largest of a series of sediment-hosted copper deposits of the Anti-Atlas copper province in Morocco. Mineralized rocks in the deposit contain disseminated sulphides within a Late Ediacaran, dominantly siliciclastic sedimentary formation named the Basal Series. Isopach map of the Basal Series thickness shows that during the Late Ediacaran the area was composed of large subsiding zones separated by paleohighs. The ore-grade zones are well developed along basin margins adjacent to the basement paleohighs. These mineralized zones display a lateral sulphide zoning with central bornite-chalcocite zones grading outward to intermediate chalcopyrite and external pyrite zones. There is also a vertical sulphide zoning with evolution from bornite and chalcocite dominant mineralized rocks at the bottom to chalcopyrite and pyrite dominant mineralized rocks at the top of the lithostratigraphic succession. A second style of mineralization is represented by sulphide filled fractures and
40 - 20 million years ago. Great Valley Sediments. The stratigraphy of the Great Valley Sequence (GVS) sediments on Quail Ridge is largely obscured by vegetation, but visitors who approach the Ridge from the east have the opportunity to get a great view of them at the Monticello Dam overlook, as well as in the roadcuts from there to the Reserve. Sediments at the dam and in the Reserve, originally laid down horizontally, are nearly vertical. In the gap at Devils Gate where the dam was built, it is clear that some of the strata are more resistant to erosion than others - in general, the sandstones are more resistant than the finer grained silt and shale layers.. These sediments were laid down over a period of 75 million years, from 140-65 million years ago. They are derived by erosion from the early Sierra Nevada and/or Klamath Mountains, which were up to 3000-4000 m high (for reference, the peak of Mt. Whitney is 4417 m above sea level). The sediments appear to have been deposited off the edge ...
PURPOSE OF THE FIELD TRIP Members of the Oklahoma Academy of Science have briefly visited rocks of the Gulf Coastal Plain twice in the recent past. On the spring 1995 field trip, we collected the echinois Enallaster texanus (Roemer) from the Goodland Limestone at the Meridian Aggregates Company quarry just north of the town of Idabel. On the spring 1996 field trip, we saw a major unconformity just south of Lake Murray where the very tilted Pennsylvanian Pumpkin Creek Limestone (about 310 million years old) was overlain by the nearly horizontal Cretaceous Antlers Sandstone (about 108 m.y. old) (note - this age is more accurate than that given in the Lake Murray guidebook).; This year, members of the OAS will once again visit the sedimentary rocks of the Oklahoma Gulf Coastal Plain, but our objectives will be slightly different. We will apply some fundamental geologic principles to what we see in the rocks and attempt to determine under what environmental conditions the sediments were deposited ...
Rainfall and expulsion of waters of the deep {something never specifically explained BTW}of the intensity required to produce a flood covering the entire earth is not possible due to the heat energy produced in the process which would effectively kill all life on earth excepting perhaps extremophiles. It is thus impossible to avoid the horrible consequence of such a flood which would steam alive any creatures in the environment.. The 100% humidity would also kill animals that do not sweat {like dogs} since they depend upon evaporation of moisture from their tongues in order to cool their core temperature.It would be impossible for them to survive a prolonged exposure to such conditions.. Ice worms. {http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_worms} and {http://www.nichols.edu/departments/glacier/iceworm.htm}. are incapable of surviving off glaciers in temperatures above a few degrees of the freezing point of water.

The basic premise to explore the petroleum is the existence of sedimentary basin. Sedimentary basin is a depression on the earth surface the can accummulated the sedimentation material through time. Since most of the sediment transporting agent are water, the sedimentary basin usually the place where the water finally accummulate. It can be in the form of sea, lake, delta, or river. Indonesia is a large country with various type of sedimentary basins. Most of the sedimentary basin in the western Indonesia are already explored since the end of 19th century. The recent years also saws the exploration on the frontier basins, especially in the eastern Indonesia. Unfortunately, the interest of the major oil companies lost their appetite to conduct explorationa activities in Indonesia probably due to the unfavorable fiscal regime. As a result, the oil and gas production is keep declining in Indonesia without any substantial reserve replacement. The sediment which comprise of clay, sand, boulder or ...

Scott McLennan. In 1997, a two-decade absence from the surface of the red planet ended with the successful landing of the NASA Mars Pathfinder mission. One component of Pathfinder was a microwave-sized rover, Sojourner, that survived for 83 sols (Martian days), more than ten times its life expectancy, and traversed just over the length of a football field. Pathfinder first demonstrated the capability to remotely command a rover on Mars, collected valuable geochemical data and instigated a new phase of laboratory experimentation and general excitement for studying Mars. The next rovers to land on Mars were the hugely successful Spirit and Opportunity, arriving two weeks apart in January 2004. These rovers shattered all expectations of what could be done with mobile spacecraft on planetary surfaces, surviving massive dust storms, climbing mountains, exploring crater interiors and breaking records for survival and drive distance set by the lunar rovers some 40 years earlier - over 11 years and 42 ...

Several times at the end of the Miocene epoch (six to eight million years ago), the Mediterranean Sea dried up, leaving extensive desert deposits on the sea bottom (Hsu, 1972). The Straits of Gibraltar opened and closed, causing these complex changes, as the Glomar Challenger discovered in 1970 by using echo soundings and deep-sea core samples. Each time the Mediterranean slowly dried up, first calcite precipitated around the rim of the basin of the Balearic abyssal plain, then anhydrites and gypsum further in, and finally rock salt in the center at the deepest point. This is just the order that these salts would precipitate if you set out a large saucer of sea water to dry. Successive dryings of the Mediterranean produced hundreds of meters of evaporites. Not only did evaporites form, but also land deposits like sun-baked mud cracks, wind-blown sand, and sabkha anhydrite nodules. Since algae can only grow where sunlight reaches, the stromatolites (a common algae deposit) found in deep sea core ...

According to John Eiler (2003; Inside the Subduction Factory, Geophys. Monogr. Ser., vol. 138) the question of why volcanoes appear at ocean ridges and "hotspots" is fundamentally a solved problem. Ridges passively tap the ambient convecting mantle while "hotspots" are fed by hot, actively upwelling, jets from the core-mantle boundary. Whole mantle convection and deep slab penetration have also been deemed as proved, by visual inspection of color pictures. High-resolution broad-band seismic data, inverted for anisotropy and absolute seismic velocities (as opposed to relative travel times over a limited aperture array), however, suggest that the MORB source is actually in the sinking-slab-induced broad passive upwellings from the transition zone while intraplate volcanoes tap the low-velocity part of the surface boundary layer. There is increasing evidence that the upper mantle boundary layer (Gutenbergs Region B) is not only buoyant (e.g. PREM plus Mark Simons) but is a mélange that includes ...

It regulates weather patterns, sculpts the coasts of the continents, and contains records of the past 200 million years of earths climate in sediment on the seafloor. In this course we will develop an understanding of the global marine system through study of its interconnected geological, chemical, physical, and biological processes. These fundamental principles include seafloor spreading, the transport of heat from the equator to the poles, and cycling of nutrients and organic matter by plankton. We will address how the ocean has evolved over the planets history, from changes in its circulation brought on by shifting continental configurations and climate fluctuations to its chemical responses to increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The course will conclude with scientifically informed considerations of some of the challenges humanity faces in deciding how to use the ocean and its resources. Three ...
