Findings could aid in the development of better technologies for hydraulic fracturing and other fluid extraction techniques from the earth When geologists survey an area of land for the potential that gas or petroleum deposits could exist there, they must take into account the composition of rocks that lie below the surface. Take, for instance, sandstone"”a sedimentary rock composed mostly of weakly cemented quartz grains. Previous research had suggested that compaction...

By Patricia Reaney LONDON (Reuters) - Creating artificial seismic waves, similar to those that occur during an earthquake, could help squeeze more oil from natural reservoirs, scientists said on Wednesday. They discovered that in addition to sending tremors that knock down buildings, earthquakes greatly increase the permeability of rocks to transmit fluids including oil. "Shaking increases permeability," Emily Brodsky, an assistant professor of Earth Sciences at the University of California,...


Word of the Day
out-herod
  • In the phrase to out-herod Herod, to be more violent than Herod (as represented in the old mystery plays); hence, to exceed in any excess of evil.
Herod refers to 'Herod the Great,' a Roman client king and 'a madman who murdered his own family and a great many rabbis.' According to the OED, the term is 'chiefly with allusion to Shakespeare's use' in Hamlet.
