Petroleum Geology of Libya

Libya has the most important petroleum reserves of any state in Africa and because construction begun in 1961 over 20 billion barrels of oil were produced. Libya is scheduled to arrive the mid-point of depletion of reserves in 2001 and this gives a well timed element at which to check the country of petroleum exploration in Libya.

Data Mining Techniques for the Life Sciences

While getting detailed information approximately residing structures and complex experimental tactics have essentially absorbed the minds of researchers formerly, the advance of high-throughput applied sciences has prompted the burden to more and more shift to the matter of studying accrued information when it comes to organic functionality and biomolecular mechanisms.

T h e scale is e x p a n d e d in o r d e r to set the upper standard near full scale. A graph is p r e p a r e d , and the t w o standard points are joined by a straight line. Sample c o n c e n t r a t i o n s are obtained from the graph. All precautions to minimize interferences and to correct for background apply. 9. Special Procedures P r o c e d u r e s based on flame and electrothermal atomizations are satisfactory for determinations of many elements of geological interest. S o m e elements have poor sensitivities in flames, as s h o w n in Table 2 .

Inorganic acids used in sample preparation have a suppressing effect. Nitric acid c a u s e s severe suppression of selenium. G a s p h a s e interferences are related to the m e c h a n i s m of hydride atomization. For example, a quartz tube analyzer was subject to less interference than an a r g o n hydrogen flame or a graphite furnace (15). M a n y w o r k e r s h a v e tried to r e d u c e the interferences d u e to sample matrix by increasing acid and sodium b o r o h y d r i d e c o n c e n t r a t i o n s and by adding complexing agents of various kinds prior to hydride formation.

E a c h lamp should be operated for a brief time (about 30 min) each month even if it has not been required for analytical work. A weak lamp can sometimes be regenerated by reversing the leads to the electrodes and operating the lamp at a few milliamperes for about 10 min. Some multielement lamps are marketed on the basis of saving the cost of several single-element l a m p s . Dual-element lamps of closely related elements such as magnesium/calcium and sodium/potassium have performed well in the a u t h o r s ' laboratory.
