Shallow Anomalies Workshop: Indications of Prospective Petroleum Systems? | Year: 2014

Geochemical surveys will tend to show ambiguous results and will remain tarred as "unreliable" unless there is skilled interpretation of the shallow petroleum system and objective selection of seafloor targets. It is also essential there is careful navigation to the seafloor target. Doing some analysis on board the vessel in the field will also increase confidence that the intended target is sampled.

Now it is the moment for CPV to become a reliable solution for large scale electricity generation, because it is one of the technologies with higher efficiency, and moreover, it has still margin for improvement. In order to continue with this development, it is important to introduce, in the design of the installations, all the lessons learned during the operation of pilot plants. This paper presents the operation results obtained at the ISFOC pilot plants, during the first three and a half years of operation, and the NACIR project. The CPV technology is not demonstrating signs of degradation which could reduce its high capability of transforming light into electricity. From the operation issues, valuable information is obtained in order to improve the design, turning CPV prototypes into an industrialized product ready to compete with other technologies, making a great effort in the reduction of the installation costs. © 2012 American Institute of Physics.

Monitoring forest state is required to estimate the levels of greenhouse gases emissions from deforestation. The objective of this study was to estimate deforestation trends for 2005-2010 and 2010-2013 periods in the eastern rainforests ecoregion of Madagascar. A supervised classification approach of multi-date Landsat images using the Random Forest algorithm was used. A complete 30 m map of the forest cover change was produced on 20.5 million hectares. The result was validated by photo interpretation of nearly 11 000 points from a regular sampling grid on the basis of SPOTand Landsat satellite images acquired in 2010-2013. The overall mapping accuracy was estimated to be about 90%. The area of Madagascar rainforests has been estimated at 4.5 million hectares in 2005, 4.4 million hectares in 2010 and 4.3 million hectares in 2013. The annual rate of deforestation has increased from 0.5%. to 0.9 % between the two periods. This study could be considered as a reliable cost-effective and reproductible approach for monitoring forests in Madagascar. Source
