“Revolutionary” to “Disastrous”

More than 7 billion barrels of oil and six hundred trillion cubic feet of natural gas were produced by hydraulic fracturing in the USA, while more than 1.7 million wells were completed. (American Petroleum Institute). Apart from the increase in the production of hydrocarbon, hydraulic fracturing created millions of jobs. According to American Petroleum InstituteContinue reading ““Revolutionary” to “Disastrous””

Was the volcanic eruption responsible for the extinction of dinosaurs or asteroids?

During the last five hundred million years there were many phenomena of extinction took place. Still, there was five major extinction happened on earth. These extinctions were taken place due to environmental change drives by the massive eruption of the volcano. The latest extinction took place about sixty-six million years ago (At the end ofContinue reading “Was the volcanic eruption responsible for the extinction of dinosaurs or asteroids?”

Impact of production of sand on the productivity of well

The Production of sand is one of the significant issues in the well’s productivity; it can collapse well.  What is Sand Production? According to the Schlumberger oilfield glossary.” The migration of formation sand caused by the flow of reservoir fluids.” Generally, the production of sand is unwanted, as it restricts the productivity Causing erosion ofContinue reading “Impact of production of sand on the productivity of well”

Was there only Supercontinent “Pangea”?

It was commonly thought that there is only one Supercontinent, “PangeaBut recent research conducted by the Curtin University has found two other continents on the earth plane before the Pangea. Pangea has existed from the late Paleozoic to early Mesozoic eras on the geological time scale. About 175 million years ago, Pangea started breaking intoContinue reading “Was there only Supercontinent “Pangea”?”

“Discovery of new Basalt, Similar to the size of Western Europe.”

The discovery is made in one of the deepest waters. Basalt is one of the most common igneous rocks that can be found on Earth. The newly discovered type of Basalt found beneath the Pacific ocean formed due to the volcano’s massive and hot eruption. It was never be thought before that the mantle ofContinue reading ““Discovery of new Basalt, Similar to the size of Western Europe.””

“Global Warming and Role of Oceans”

Oceans are the Lungs and Heart of Earth. The recent studies find the relationship between oceans and Earth’s atmosphere in a more sophisticated way and the role of oceans on global warming and climate changes. Generally, the ocean is described as the body of water, has vast waves, beaches, and covers about 70 percent ofContinue reading ““Global Warming and Role of Oceans””

“Potential Source of Fuel”

Methane hydrate is a potential fuel source and is considered one of the largest sources of natural gas in the world. Methane hydrate is an ice-like material composed of compressed natural gas and can be found in some seafloor and arctic permafrost regions. Upon melting, it released the methane gas into the atmosphere, caused byContinue reading ““Potential Source of Fuel””

Were these lightning bolts that started life on earth?

Billions of years ago on earth, trillions of lightning bolt strikes may form Phosphorus; that’s the life began suggests by the study. A study carried by a student of the earth science department at yale university has found that 4.5 billion years ago on earth, life was formed by striking lightning, which is an essentialContinue reading “Were these lightning bolts that started life on earth?”

Do melting glaciers cause Earth Quakes?

Scientist believed from half a century that the melting of glaciers caused Earthquake, even in those regions which are stable tectonically. For example, in Alaska, it is harder to differentiate the earthquakes from those due to glaciers’ melting because, in this region, earthquakes are frequent. The researcher now found and believe that the loss ofContinue reading “Do melting glaciers cause Earth Quakes?”
