BOREHOLE SAMPLE FROM DEPTH OF 6849 M AND SURFACE ANALOGUE SAMPLES (Fig.
Shown are the borehole sample positions and boundaries between different sediment units and subunits.
GDM's instantaneous calculation of borehole sample coordinates enabled fully updated plans [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 4 OMITTED] and sections [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 5 OMITTED] to be produced on site as the work advanced.
In follow-up studies, scientists want to continue exploring the mystery of Bermuda by examining the mineralogy and geochemistry of borehole samples.
The packaged borehole samples were placed in coolers (at approximately 4-5[degrees]C) with ice bags in the field for transport to the School of Environmental Studies of the China University of Geoscience, where samples were stored at 4-5[degrees] C prior to analysis, to minimize the growth of microorganisms.
The average mass fraction percentages of Si[O.sub.2] are only 17.43%, which is less than half of that of borehole samples. Nevertheless, the average mass fraction percentage of S[O.sub.3] reaches 33.38%.
Similarities between surface and borehole samples (Snape 1993) also support the assumption that the respective sediments are contemporaneous and palaeoecologically comparable.
This was probably why most contaminants had a higher concentration in leachate which became reduced significantly in borehole samples. TDS ranged between 26-453 mg/l in groundwater, which was within the recommended standard, but leachate had values as high as 3580 mg/l, thus being higher than the recommended value.
Forewind stakeholder manager Nikki Young said that since the first consultation in spring 2012, there have been several updates to the proposals, with progress made on the proposed converter stations, and surveys to gather noise and geophysical data and borehole samples.
The data used to build the proposed model was collected from borehole samples taken from slate deposits in Baja Cabrera Leonesa (northwest Spain), an area with a long tradition of extracting, processing, and exporting roofing slate.
Harvey and Butterfield reveal exquisitely preserved fossils of 520 million-year-old Cambrian marine animals, including the microscopic feeding apparatus of early crustacean arthropods, from surface and borehole samples of the Mount Cap Formation in the Northwest Territories.
With the downhole equipment described above and the system completely closed to the atmosphere, borehole samples were collected periodically from 2003 to 2006.
