    Assessment of undiscovered oil and gas resources of the Central Burma Basin and the Irrawaddy–Andaman and Indo-Burman Geologic Provinces, Myanmar

    Description
    The results of an assessment of undiscovered, technically recoverable oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquids resources in the Irrawaddy‒Andaman and Indo-Burman Geologic Provinces are presented. The assessment was based on data from oil and gas exploration and production wells, production data, and published geologic reports. This fact sheet (2012-3107, August 2012) has been produced by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) as part of the World Petroleum Resources Project.

    Experimental study on the mechanics character of lava in the area of Xujiaweizi

    Description
    This study examined the characteristics of the lava in the area of the Xujiaweizi rift in the north of Songliao Basin, the largest volcanic gas reservoir in China, in order to facilitate drilling for oil in that region. The article was published in the Journal of Geography and Geology Vol. 1, No. 2; November 2009.

    Modal and sandstone composition of the representative turbidite from the Majalengka Sub-Basin, West Java Indonesia

    Description
    This article describes the turbidite sequence from the Majalengka sub-basin, West Java Indonesia, with respect to its provenance and the composition of the sediment deposited during the middle to late Miocene. It considers the influence of the two processes of magmatism and tectonism. The article was published in the Journal of Geography and Geology Vol. 4, No. 1; March 2012.

    Practising science: reading the rocks and ecology: LearningSpace: Open University

    Description
    This introductory module presents a practical introduction to activities undertaken by students of earth sciences and ecology. The earth sciences section covers the use of a hand lens to examine rocks and their modes of formation. It includes igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks. Information is also provided on the rock cycle. The module is expected to take fourteen hours to complete and is provided by the UK Open University as part of its LearningSpace, a collection of over 800 free online courses (as at July 2016).

    Study of basalt fingers using experiments and numerical simulations in double-diffusive systems

    Description
    This article reports a study of the evolution of columnar basalt structures. Experimental results and simulations were used to explore the possibility of getting thick fingers, similar to columnar basalt structures, using high viscosity fluids. The article was published in the Journal of Geography and Geology Vol. 3, No. 1; September 2011.
