  • 1.1 billion budget for the U.S. Geological Survey

    The US President’s proposed USD 1.1 billion budget for the U.S. Geological Survey in 2012 emphasizes cost-containment and program savings while investing in research and development programs to restore and protect the nation’s lands and waters for future generations. To address the President’s priority on fiscal responsibility, the USGS 2012 budget makes vital investments in ...


  • DOE selects projects to monitor and evaluate geologic CO2 storage

    The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced the selection of 19 projects to enhance the capability to simulate, track, and evaluate the potential risks of carbon dioxide (CO2) storage in geologic formations. The projects' total value is approximately $35.8 million over four years, with $27.6 million of DOE funding and $8.2 million of non-Federal cost sharing. The work will be managed by ...

  • Projects Selected for Safe and Permanent Geologic Storage of Carbon Dioxide

    The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced the selection of 13 projects to develop technologies and methodologies for geologic storage of carbon dioxide (CO2). Carbon capture and storage (CCS) research is focused on developing technologies to capture industrially generated CO2, and safely and permanently store it in underground geologic formations, in order to reduce the amount of CO2 being ...

  • Questions and Answers on the proposal for a directive on the geological storage of carbon dioxide

    1) What is carbon capture and storage? Carbon capture and storage is a suite of technological processes which involve capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from the gases discarded by industry and transporting and injecting it into geological formations. The major application for carbon capture and storage (CCS) is to reduce CO2 emissions from power generation from fossil fuels, principally ...

  • Landmark US Geological Survey study demonstrates how methylmercury, known to contaminate seafood, originates in the ocean

    A new landmark study published today documents for the first time the process in which increased mercury emissions from human sources across the globe, and in particular from Asia, make their way into the North Pacific Ocean and as a result contaminate tuna and other seafood. Because much of the mercury that enters the North Pacific comes from the atmosphere, scientists have predicted an ...

  • Alabama injection project aimed at enhanced oil recovery, testing important geologic CO2 storage

    Carbon dioxide (CO2) injection — an important part of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology — is underway as part of a pilot study of CO2 enhanced oil recovery (EOR) in the Citronelle Field of Mobile County, Alabama. A project team led by the University of Alabama at Birmingham is conducting the injection. Study results of the 7,500-ton CO2 injection will provide estimates of oil yields ...

  • New Discoveries Improve Climate Models

    New discoveries on how underwater ridges impact the ocean's circulation system will help improve climate projections. An underwater ridge can trap the flow of cold, dense water at the bottom of the ocean. Without the ridge, deepwater can flow freely and speed up the ocean circulation pattern, which generally increases the flow of warm surface water. Warm water on the ocean's ...

  • Modeling underground sequestration of carbon dioxide

    When it comes to predicting the fate of captured carbon dioxide (CO2) stored underground, 2008 Henry Darcy Distinguished Lecturer Michael Celia, Ph.D., and his colleagues have invented a better mousetrap for decision-makers trying to mitigate the effects of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. Celia wrapped up his year as the National Ground Water Research and Educational's Foundation Darcy ...

  • Scientists develop improved groundwater forecasting model

    Scientists in India have developed a more efficient computing model to predict monthly changes in groundwater, which is depleted in many areas of developing countries because of damaged soils and poor irrigation practices. A team of scientists based in India's four southern states used the concept of an 'artificial neural network' (ANN), a computing technique that mimics the way millions of ...

  • New model simulates US groundwater and surface water interactions

    A new model to simulate groundwater and surface water interactions has been released by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The groundwater and surface water FLOW (GSFLOW) model simultaneously accounts for climatic conditions, runoff across the land surface, subsurface flow and storage, and the connections among terrestrial systems, streams, lakes, wetlands, and ground water. 'GSFLOW can be used ...
