Index / Coal / Exploration and Production
Peter Warwick and the USGS report on the recently released Geologic Assessment of Coal in the Gulf of Mexico Coastal Plain, USA. This is the fifth in a series of reports by the U.S. Geological Survey on the assessment of the quantity and quality of the national coal deposits that potentially can be mined during the next few decades. For eight years - 1995 - 2003, geologic, geochemical, and resource information was collected and compiled for the five major coal-producing regions of the United States: the Appalachian Basin, Illinois Basin, Northern Rocky Mountains and Great Plains, Colorado Plat...

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Other, Thorium, Helium-3 and Fusion Research
James F. Reilly II reports in Chapter 7 of the EMD Memoir 101 that any frontier exploration effort transitions eventually to an exploitation phase. Exploitation can be research or economic in nature. In either case, a regulatory framework is required to coordinate and govern any activity in the new realm. The Earth orbital regime has entered the exploitation phase with the advent of a permanent research facility in the form of the International Space Station - ISS - and increasing activity in the private sector. The lunar regime and perhaps near-Earth asteroids will be potentially entering the... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Other, Thorium, Helium-3 and Fusion Research
Bruce L. Cutright reports in Chapter 4 of the EMD Memoir 101 that near-earth asteroids and comets, collectively the near-Earth objects - NEOs, represent a large population of minor planetary bodies whose orbits lie mostly within the zone between Venus and Mars. Many of these objects cross the Earth orbit, providing relatively easy access from Earth for manned or robotic sampling and exploration missions with fewer propulsion requirements than trips to the Moon or to Mars. This chapter provides a review of NEOs in the context of supporting, through in-situ resource utilization, an active and ex... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Other, Thorium, Helium-3 and Fusion Research
Dieter Beike reports in Chapter 3 of the EMD Memoir 101 that lunar helium-3 is considered one of the potential resources for utilization as a fuel source for future Earth-based nuclear fusion plants. With a potential start-up of a commercial fusion power plant by the year 2050, Beike describes technology and commercial aspects for a lunar helium-3 mining operation that could fuel such a power plant. Barriers for development are mostly inferred to exist in the fusion part of the helium-3 value chain.

Commercially, a helium-3 operation would have to compete with other energy supply s... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Other, Thorium, Helium-3 and Fusion Research
Harrison H. Schmitt reports in Chapter 2 of the EMD Memoir 101 that the financial, environmental, and national security carrot for helium-3 fusion power requires access to low-cost lunar helium-3. Helium-3 fusion potentially would provide an environmentally benign means of helping to meet an anticipated ninefold increase in energy demand by 2050.

Not available in other than research quantities on Earth, this light isotope of ordinary helium-4 reaches the Moon as a component of the solar wind. Embedded continuously in the lunar dust for billions of years, concentrations have reached... More →

Index / Solar Energy / Other
David R. Criswell reports in Chapter 8 of the EMD Memoir 101 that Earth and our Moon intercept tiny fractions of the high-quality power generated by the Sun. The oceans and atmosphere, modified by the life of the growing biosphere, moderate the day-night swings of temperature to an average global temperature of 158 degrees C. Our moderating biosphere enabled humans to evolve to where our industries now consume increasing parts of the ancient - i.e., fossil fuels, high-grade minerals, and others, and modern biosphere - i.e., atmospheric oxygen, clean water, and others, and are significantly deg...

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Other, Thorium, Helium-3 and Fusion Research
US researchers have achieved a world first in an ambitious experiment that aims to recreate the conditions at the heart of the sun and pave the way for nuclear fusion reactors. The scientists generated more energy from fusion reactions than they put into the nuclear fuel, in a small but crucial step along the road to harnessing fusion power. The ultimate goal to produce more energy than the whole experiment consumes remains a long way off, but the feat has nonetheless raised hopes that after decades of setbacks, firm progress is finally being made.

Fusion energy has the potential to... More →

Index / Regulations / Methane and CO2 Emissions
The White House Office of the Press Secretary announced that the Obama Administration is committed to taking responsible steps to address climate change and to help ensure a cleaner, more stable environment for future generations. As part of that effort, today, the Administration is announcing a new goal to cut methane emissions from the oil and gas sector by 40 to 45 percent from 2012 levels by 2025, and a set of actions to put the U.S. on a path to achieve this ambitious goal.

Richard P. McCulloh reports that a sidewalk fracture in a residential neighborhood
not far north of the Baton Rouge fault in southern East Baton Rouge Parish exhibits
what may be transcurrent or strike-slip displacement of approximately 10 cm or 3.9 in, with a left-lateral sense of separation. The fracture, which strikes approximately N 72 degrees E, is subparallel to the sidewalk and transects portions of 6 sidewalk panels. The average strike of the Baton Rouge fault in the area to the south is approximately N 79 degrees W, making the angle between the fracture and the fault approxi... More →

Carrie Wong reports that the Moon today has a very weak magnetic field, but researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology recently released a paper in Nature showing that the Moon once had a much stronger magnetic field. The core of the Earth is surrounded by a mixture of molten iron and nickel. The Earth magnetic field is caused by currents of electricity that flow in the core.
