Geological Storage of CO2 – Long Term Security Aspects: by Axel Liebscher, Ute Münch

By Axel Liebscher, Ute Münch

This e-book explores the economic use of safe, everlasting garage applied sciences for carbon dioxide (CO2), in particular geological CO2 garage. Readers are invited to find how this greenhouse gasoline may be spared from everlasting free up into the ambience via garage in deep rock formations. issues explored the following comprise CO2 reservoir administration, caprock formation, bio-chemical techniques and fluid migration. specific awareness is given to groundwater defense, the advance of sensor expertise, borehole seals and cement quality.
A collaborative paintings by means of scientists and commercial companions, this quantity offers unique examine, it investigates a number of elements of cutting edge applied sciences for medium-term use and it encompasses a unique hazard analysis.
Coal-based energy iteration, strength eating commercial tactics (such as metal and cement) and the burning of biomass all bring about carbon dioxide. these occupied with such industries who're contemplating geological garage of CO2, in addition to earth scientists and engineers will worth this publication and the cutting edge tracking equipment defined. Researchers within the box of machine imaging and development popularity also will locate whatever of curiosity in those chapters.

Indian Foreign and Security Policy in South Asia: Regional Power Strategies

This ebook examines Indian overseas coverage and protection family members in its japanese neighborhood neighbourhood.

Indian international and defense coverage in South Asia conducts an in-depth research into India’s international coverage in the direction of the 3 major international locations in India’s jap neighbourhood – Sri Lanka, Nepal, and Bangladesh. specifically, it bargains with India’s function within the ultimate years of the civil struggle in Sri Lanka, its method of the peace and democratisation strategy in Nepal, and Indian international coverage in the direction of Bangladesh on a number concerns together with Islamist militancy, migration, border defense, and insurgency.

Set inside an analytical framework concentrated at the notions of ‘empire’, ‘hegemony’, and ‘leadership’, the research finds that India pursued predominantly hegemonic concepts and used to be unable to generate actual followership between its smaller neighbours. The South Asian case as a result indicates the discrepancy which can exist among the ownership of energy functions and the power to workout real impact: a end which lifts the examine from geographical specifics, and extends its relevance to different situations and cross-regional comparisons.

This textual content might be of a lot curiosity to scholars of Indian overseas coverage, Asian defense, international coverage research, strategic stories and IR in general.

Aggressive Network Self-Defense

During the last yr there was a shift in the computing device safety international clear of passive, reactive security in the direction of extra competitive, proactive countermeasures. even if such strategies are tremendous arguable, many protection execs are achieving into the darkish facet in their device field to spot, objective, and suppress their adversaries.

ISSE 2006 — Securing Electronic Busines Processes: Highlights of the Information Security Solutions Europe 2006 Conference

This ebook offers the main fascinating talks given at ISSE 2006 - the discussion board for the interdisciplinary dialogue of ways to accurately safe digital enterprise approaches. the themes comprise: clever Token and e-ID-Card advancements and their program - safe Computing and the way it is going to swap the best way we belief pcs - probability administration and the way to quantify safeguard threats - wisdom elevating, facts safety and the way we safe company details.

Protecting Human Security in Africa

Conserving Human protection in Africa discusses one of the most effective threats to human safety in Africa. It bargains in particular with these threats to the safety of African humans that are least understood or explored. In subject matters various from corruption, the proliferation of small fingers and light-weight guns, foodstuff defense, the devastation of inner displacement in Africa, the hyperlink among traditional assets and human safety, to the issues of pressured labour, threatsto women's safeguard, and environmental protection, the e-book examines the criminal and coverage demanding situations of defending human safety in Africa.

Numerous methods and technologies from different disciplines (such as chemistry, hydrogeology, meteorology, and geophysics) were either combined or used complementarily to one another, with results subsequently being jointly interpreted. Patterns of atmospheric CO2 distributions in terms of leakage detection can be observed on large scales with the help of infrared spectroscopy or micrometeorological methods, which aim to identify zones with unexpected or anomalous atmospheric CO2 concentrations.
