Explosives Detection Using Magnetic and Nuclear Resonance Techniques

Nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR) a hugely promising new approach for bulk explosives detection: really reasonably cheap, extra compact than NMR, yet with substantial selectivity. because the NQR frequency is insensitive to long-range adaptations in composition, blending explosives with different fabrics, akin to the plasticizers in plastic explosives, makes no distinction.

0 billion tonnes of inferred reserves. Coking coals 23 2004 Survey of Energy Resources constitute 18% of the tonnage of proved reserves. Lignite deposits mostly occur in the southern State of Tamil Nadu. 4 billion tonnes in the Neyveli area are regarded as ‘mineable under the presently adopted mining parameters’, and taken as proved recoverable reserves in the present Survey. Annual production of lignite is currently in the region of 24 million tonnes, almost all of which is used for electricity generation.

The principal economic hard coal deposits of Russia are found in the Pechora and Kuznetsk basins. The former, which covers an area of some 90 000 km2, has been extensively developed for underground operations, despite the severe climate and the fact that 85% of the basin is under permafrost. The deposits are in relatively close proximity to markets and much of the coal is of good rank, including coking grades. The Kuznetsk basin, an area of some 26 700 km2, lies to the east of the city of Novosibirsk and contains a wide range of coals; the ash content is variable and the sulphur is generally low.

By collaborating with others they potentially lose some of the upside but can pool resources and ideas and spread the risks more thinly. Chapter 2: Crude Oil and Natural Gas Liquids Joint Ventures Long-established cooperation between oil companies in the upstream business, refining and marketing is being supplemented by new joint ventures and partnerships, both in traditional and developing areas of the industry. In the mature oil province of the UK North Sea, for example, large oil companies are using collaborative approaches to make their assets work harder while smaller companies entering for the first time are trying to find economic ways of exploiting ever smaller pockets of oil around existing infrastructure.
