AGE OF EXPLORATION AND VOYAGES OF DISCOVERY
In 1456 Diogo Gomes reached the Cape Verde archipelago. In the subsequent decade several captains on the service of Prince Henry—including the Genoese Antonio da Noli and Venetian Alvise Cadamosto—found the remaining islands which had been occupied in the course of the fifteenth century.
Polynesians had been a maritime individuals, who populated and explored the central and south Pacific for round 5,000 years, up to about 1280 once they discovered New Zealand. The key invention to their exploration was the outrigger canoe, which offered a swift and stable platform for carrying items and people. Based on limited evidence, it’s thought that the voyage to New Zealand was deliberate. It is unknown if one or more boats went to New Zealand, or the kind of boat, or the names of those who migrated.
This was an essential step for Europe as a result of … Read More
South: The Illustrated Story of Shackleton’s Last Expedition 1914-1917
(2) From the info of Yongtan 1, we discovered high-high quality volcanic porous reservoirs with a thickness of over a hundred m developed in the Permian strata, the effusive volcanic rock types dominated by breccia and tuffaceous breccia, reservoir area composed of dissolution pores, interbreccia dissolution pores, and different pores, the porosity of which is 6.sixty eight%–13.22% and 10.26% on common, the permeability zero.01–four.forty three mD and a pair of.35 mD on average. (3) This abnormally excessive stress fuel reservoir was buried 4500–6000 m deep underground with the center formation stress being 125.625 MPa and the strain coefficient being as much as 2.22. Methane content material in the minor H 2 S-bearing produced gasoline circulate reached up to ninety nine.03%. (4) Volcanic rocks within the Jianyang–Zhongjiang–Santai space are developed, and they are adjoining to the Cambrian high-quality supply rocks in the … Read More
The expedition was a failure, reaching no farther than Colombia earlier than succumbing to bad weather, starvation and skirmishes with hostile locals, where Almagro misplaced an eye fixed. The place names bestowed along their route, Puerto deseado (desired port), Puerto del hambre (port of starvation) and Puerto quemado (burned port), attest to the difficulties of their journey.
The early extensional deep faults play a job in connecting supply and storage. There are many units of caprocks, such as the Upper Permian Longtan Formation and Lower Triassic layered thick paste rocks, offering conditions for forming giant-scale tectonic–lithologic composite lure gasoline reservoirs, and the favorable exploration area reaches as much as 6000 km 2 . In conclusion, this major discovery not only proves that Permian volcanic rocks within the Sichuan Basin has giant potential for oil and gas exploration, but reaffirms the arrogance in changing our exploration thought, rushing up new exploration … Read More
