By Williams, Walt BRIDGEPORT - Coal and natural gas may be fueling the cars of the future, but fueling the industries that supply those natural resources will be water. In some cases it will be a lot of water. One relatively new technique used to get natural gas out of the ground may use as much as 50 or more times the amount of water as traditional drilling. Also, a much-hyped process used to convert coal into liquid fuel has the potential to eat up thousands of gallons of water every...

By Hengel, Mark RISING ENERGY PRICES have made exploiting many of Arkansas' natural resources more viable, and many of those resources are in south Arkansas. "The price of energy commodities always renews interest in Arkansas' resources," said Ed Ratchford, senior petroleum geologist at the Arkansas Geological Survey. "Arkansas is rich in fossil fuels and has a long history of production of fossil fuels." Recent developments prompting increased interest in energy production in south...

Celestite (SrSO4) is a mineral consisting of strontium sulfate. The mineral is also known as celestine and is named for its occasional delicate blue color. Celestite occurs as crystals, and also in compact massive and fibrous forms. It is mostly found in sedimentary rocks, often associated with the minerals gypsum, anhydrite, and halite. The mineral is found worldwide, usually in small quantities. Pale blue crystal specimens are found in Madagascar.

Chert is a fine-grained silica-rich cryptocrystalline sedimentary rock that may contain small fossils. It varies greatly in color from white to black, but most often manifests as gray, brown, grayish brown and light green to rusty red; its color is an expression of trace elements present in the rock, and both red and green are most often related to traces of iron (in its oxidized and reduced forms respectively). It outcrops as nodules in limestone, chalk, and dolostone formations as a...

In geology, a conglomerate is a rock consisting of other stones that have been cemented together. Conglomerates are sedimentary rocks consisting of subangular clasts and are thus differentiated from breccias, which consist of angular clasts. Both conglomerates and breccias are characterized by clasts larger than sand (>2 mm). There are two varieties of conglomerate, defined by texture: paraconglomerates and orthoconglomerates. Paraconglomerates are one of two varieties of conglomerate...

Dolomite is a mineral (formula CaMg(CO3)2) consisting of a calcium magnesium carbonate found in crystals and in beds as dolostone. A pure form of dolostone would be rare, however; it usually intergrades with limestone and is referred to as dolomitic limestone, or in old U. S. geologic literature as magnesian limestone. Dolomite has physical properties similar to those of the mineral calcite, but is less soluble in hydrochloric acid. There is uncertainty as to the cause of its formation,...
