GEOLOGY OF WINE
Geology can be important for the growers of grapes for wines; it can be ignored by the consumer. Most of the arguments for the importance of ‘terroir’, which includes geology, have been along the lines: ‘‘this wine has one flavour that wine has another flavour, yet they are made from the same grape variety’’. The difference must be something in the ground, i.e., it depends on the geology.
The Future of Oil is in Shale
The entire shale fracking endeavour began as a somewhat quixotic, patriotic ambition within fledgling federal energy research programs. Scientists had long understood the geology of shales and knew there was gas to be had But everyone assumed it was unreachable.
The China story
Despite strong growth in domestic production, Chinese import dependence has been growing fast, prompting the formulation of a “two-way strategy” predicated on expanded investment in exploration and production capacity in China; and on outward foreign direct investment (FDI) in mine production and, failing that, long-term supply contracts
Over the years, Maths and Science have been a challenge to many students across the country. It makes you wonder if we were meant to be a strictly artistic nation. But really, it might be important to know why women consistently shy off science courses. Is there a hormonal or psychological explanation to this? And is there anything wrong if a woman decides to venture into the field? How does society take it?
