Montana State partnership receives $66.9M for carbon sequestration
The US Department of Energy on Monday awarded $66.9 million to the Big Sky Carbon Sequestration Partnership at Montana State University to fund a project that will inject a million tons of carbon dioxide into the sandstone rock layer beneath southwestern Wyoming. (2008-11-19)

Mammoth hose reel slides toward completion
It's big. It's on runners. It will soon be painted bright red. And it's headed for the Pole. But it's not loaded with toys, and instead of being drawn by eight tiny reindeer to the North Pole, this sled -- which carries a mammoth hose reel as part of a unique cold-climate drilling rig -- is destined for the South Pole via Air Force C-130 where it will help lay the groundwork for a novel telescope.

Tracking climate change
In August 2004, a new and exciting chapter will be opened in the history of Arctic research. In the Arctic Coring Expedition (ACEX), three icebreakers will set off in the direction of the North Pole to extract cores from beneath the Arctic seafloor. (2004-06-08)

Path to oxygen in Earth's atmosphere: long series of starts and stops
The appearance of oxygen in the Earth's atmosphere probably did not occur as a single event, but as a long series of starts and stops, according to geoscientists who investigated rock cores from the FAR DEEP project. (2011-12-06)

Climate record from bottom of Russian lake shows Arctic was warmer millions of years ago
The Arctic was very warm during a period roughly 3.5 to 2 million years ago -- a time when research suggests that the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere was roughly comparable to today's -- leading to the conclusion that relatively small fluctuations in carbon dioxide levels can have a major influence on Arctic climate, according to a new analysis of the longest terrestrial sediment core ever collected in the Arctic.

Hydraulic fracturing linked to increases in hospitalization rates in the Marcellus Shale
Hospitalizations for heart conditions, neurological illness, and other conditions were higher among people who live near unconventional gas and oil drilling (hydraulic fracturing), according to new research from Pennsylvania and Columbia, published in PLOS ONE. Over the past ten years in the United States, hydraulic fracturing has experienced a meteoric increase. Due to substantial increases in well drilling, potential for air and water pollution posing a health threat has been a concern for nearby residents. (2015-07-15)

URI oceanographer receives NSF grant to study long-term climate change in Ghana, Africa
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded URI Graduate School of Oceanography (GSO) geological oceanographer Dr. John King $126,000 as part of a joint international scientific drilling project at Lake Bosumtwi, Ghana, Africa. The project will examine the climate history of the region through lake sediment analysis as well as evidence for meteorite impact cratering recorded in the rocks. (2004-06-14)

Report confirms drilling, not earthquake, caused Java mud volcano
A two-year-old mud volcano which is still spewing huge volumes of mud, has displaced more than 30,000 people and caused millions of dollars worth of damage was caused by the drilling of a gas exploration well, an international team of scientists has concluded. (2008-06-09)

Sounding Europa on the cheap: Eavesdropping on ice
Forget drilling. A simpler and cheaper way to search for an ocean under Europa's glacial surface is to land a solitary electronic ear on the Jovian moon, and listen to the echoes of cracking ice. (2002-10-25)

Rice University cuts deal to research graphene-infused drilling fluids
Rice University and Houston-based M-I SWACO, the world's largest producer of drilling fluids for the petrochemical industry, have signed an agreement for research funds to develop a graphene additive that will improve the productivity of wells. (2009-10-27)

Texas A&M to link seafaring teacher to classrooms via web
A Houston schoolteacher will soon forsake her comfortable retirement to ship out on the world's largest science vessel, the JOIDES Resolution, in a bid to bring oceanography alive for rural Texas junior high kids. (2000-11-29)

Undersea volcanic rocks offer vast repository for greenhouse gas, says study
A group of scientists has used deep ocean-floor drilling and experiments to show that volcanic rocks off the West Coast and elsewhere might be used to securely imprison huge amounts of globe-warming carbon dioxide captured from power plants or other sources. In particular, they say that natural chemical reactions under 78,000 square kilometers (30,000 square miles) of ocean floor off California, Oregon, Washington and British Columbia could lock in as much as 150 years of US CO2 production.

Space robot will help prevent landslides
One of the largest robots ever constructed will also be one of the most agile, thanks to technology derived from ESA space missions. Known as Roboclimber, this new climbing machine is designed to prevent landslides without endangering human lives. (2003-11-18)

Scientists gain new insights into 'frozen' methane beneath ocean floor
An international team of scientists supported by the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) has completed a unique research expedition aimed at recovering samples of gas hydrate, an ice-like substance hidden beneath the seafloor off Canada's western coast. Gas hydrate, a mixture of water and mostly methane, is believed to occur under the world's oceans in great abundance, but it quickly (2005-10-31)
