Saudi America: The Truth About Fracking and How It's Changing the World

  Saudi America: The Truth About Fracking and How It's Changing the World Author Bethany McLean Abstract "A sharp portrait of the US shale revolution." -- Financial Times Bestselling author Bethany McLean reveals the true story of fracking's impact -- on Wall Street, the economy and geopolitics. The technology of fracking in shale rock -- particularly in

Universal Stochastic Multiscale Image Fusion: An Example Application for Shale Rock

We develop a general solution for merging multiscale categorical spatial data into a single dataset using stochastic reconstructions with rescaled correlation functions. The versatility of the method is demonstrated by merging three images of shale rock representing macro, micro and nanoscale spatial information on mineral, organic matter and porosity distribution. Merging multiscale images of shale rock is pivotal to quantify more reliably petrophysical properties needed for production optimization and environmental impacts minimization.

Abstract Spatial data captured with sensors of different resolution would provide a maximum degree of information if the data were to be merged into a single image representing all scales. We develop a general solution for merging multiscale categorical spatial data into a single dataset using stochastic reconstructions with rescaled correlation

WHAT IS A SHALE?

Gray Shale rock from Vaca Muerta Formation, Neuquén, Argentina.

WHAT IS A SHALE? Author: Emanuel Martin Shale is a sedimentary clastic fine-grained rock rich in organic matter composed of silt and clay with the distinctive feature of break easily in thin layers. It belongs to the family of the mudrocks and although these are the 60% of the Earth’s crust just a
