EurekAlert! - Earth Science
The premier online source for science news since 1996. A service of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
Rising carbon dioxide levels, ocean acidity may change crucial marine process
(Florida State University) Climate change may be putting cyanobacteria that are crucial to the functioning of the ocean at risk as the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere increases and the acidity of ocean water changes.
NRL breakthrough enables safer alternative to lithium-ion batteries
(Naval Research Laboratory) Researchers at NRL have developed a breakthrough alternative to fire-prone lithium-ion batteries.
NASA sees vertical wind shear affecting Tropical Storm Muifa
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Vertical wind shear can weaken a tropical cyclone and that's what's happening to the now weaker Tropical Depression Muifa in the Northwestern Pacific Ocean. NASA gathered rainfall information about the storm as wind shear continued to weaken it.
Ice cave in Transylvania yields window into region's past
(National Science Foundation) Ice cores drilled from a glacier in a cave in Transylvania offer new evidence of how Europe's winter weather and climate patterns fluctuated during the last 10,000 years, known as the Holocene period.
Bureau of Reclamation makes water and related data available for easy download and use
(Bureau of Reclamation) The Bureau of Reclamation is making its water data publicly available and easily accessible through a new open data pilot project. The Reclamation Water Information System consolidates and publishes water and related data from throughout Reclamation, which makes it easier to locate and access.

NASA sees formation of Tropical Storm Frances near Darwin
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Tropical Storm Frances has formed in the Beagle Gulf, east of the Timor Sea near Darwin, Australia, and NASA's Aqua satellite captured a clear image of the storm.
Discovery in northern lakes may be key to understanding early life on Earth
(University of Waterloo) A team of researchers has discovered that many Canadian lakes can provide new insights into ancient oceans, and their findings could advance research about greenhouse gas emissions, harmful algal blooms, and early life forms.
Ocean acidification could impair the nitrogen-fixing ability of marine bacteria
(American Association for the Advancement of Science) While increased carbon dioxide levels theoretically boost the productivity of nitrogen-fixing bacteria in the world's oceans, because of its 'fertilizing' effect, a new study reveals how increasingly acidic seawater featuring higher levels of this gas can overwhelm these benefits, hampering the essential service these bacteria provide for marine life.
Oil IT Journal
Monthly headlines from Oil IT Journal.
Meme of the month!
The old 'digital twin' product lifecycle management concept gets new lease of life in big data/AI offerings from GE, IBM, Grundfos, Ansys, Siemens, Schneider Electric, Seeq, Amec, ABB, Emerson.
AMEC sold
Wood Group buys engineer Amec Foster Wheeler in 'opportunistic' 2.2 billion deal.
New website sponsors and a reflection on our 'sustainability'
OilIT.com welcomes new sponsors Dell-EMC, Halliburton/Landmark, Teradata and PNEC Conferences. Editor Neil McNaughton reports progress in enhancing the Journal's online resource while recognizing there is much more mileage to be had from 20 plus years and over 2 million words of focused reporting on oil and gas IT and data. Change is in the offing...
Oil IT interview, Mike Skeffington EnergyIQ
EnergyIQ's head of business development on data management in the downturn, EnergyIQ's JSON/XML data objects (announced at last year's PNEC) and on the excitement of Elastic Search.
Review - SPEE Monograph 4
Society of Petroleum Evaluation Engineers publication covers reserves estimation in low permeability (unconventional) reservoirs. Treatment covers state-of-the-art decline curve analysis and different approaches to numerical modeling. 'Commercial' considerations out-of-scope.
