26 Geochemical results from wireline logs in the Celebes Sea, Sites 767 and 770 of Leg 124Geochemical well logs were obtained at ODP Sites 767 and 770 in the Celebes Sea. The log data obtained at sea have been corrected for borehole size changes, the effects of drilling fluids, and logging-speed variations. The processed logs are then used to calculate the amounts of the three major ra...1991
27 Geochemical variations in an alpine lake and watershed underlain by siliciclastic bedrock, Uinta Mountains, UtahA small watershed which includes several small lakes in the Uinta Mountains of northern Utah is underlain by monolithologic Precambrian siliciclastic rock with extremely limited buffering capacity.

33 Geothermics and climate change: 1. Analysis of borehole temperatures with emphasis on resolving powerTemperature-depth data from six boreholes in western Utah and nine boreholes in southeastern Utah are reanalyzed for evidence of ground surface temperature (GST) histories. We invert the temperature-depth data using the functional space inverse algorithm of Shen and Beck [1991, 1992] which we prefer...Surface air temperature; Ground surface temperature; Borehole temperatures; Geothermal observations; Geothermics1998
34 Geothermics and climate change: 2. Joint analysis of borehole temperature and meteorological dataLong-period ground surface temperature variations contained in bore hole temperature-depth profiles form a complementary climate change record to high-frequency, but noisy surface air temperature (SAT) records at weather stations. We illustrate the benefits of jointly analyzing geothermal and meteo...Surface air temperature; Ground surface temperature; Borehole temperatures; Geothermal observations; Heat transfer1998
35 Global warming - just hot air?We know from weather station records that Earth's surface temperature has increased on average by 0.6 degrees C in the last 100 years. The 1990s have been the warmest decade on record. Over the same period, global sea level has increased by 10-20 cm. We know also that planet Earth has an atmosphere ...Greenhouse Effect; Climate change1998
36 Gombe group basalts and initiation of pliocene deposition in the Turkana depression, northern Kenya and southern EthiopiaA little before 4 Ma ago, deposition of Pliocene and Pleistocene strata described as the Omo Group began in the Turkana and Omo basins of northern Kenya and southern Ethiopia. Soon after, basaltic magma erupted as thin lava flows, and intruded as dykes into the oldest Pliocene strata of the basin. T...2004
37 Gravity signals at the Geysers geothermal systemThree high-precision gravity and GPS surveys have been conducted over The Geysers geothermal reservoir and surrounding area. These surveys, in September 2000, April 2001, and September 2001, provide an initial baseline for future imaging studies of spatial mass changes from the Santa Rosa Efflu...Ground water change; Gravity surveys2002
38 Heat flow in the Uinta Basin determined from bottom hole temperature (BHT) dataThe thermal resistance (or Bullard) method is used to judge the utility of petroleum well bottom-hole temperature data in determining surface heat flow and subsurface temperature patterns in a sedimentary basin. Thermal resistance, defined as the quotient of a depth parameter AZ and thermal con...Thermal analysis; Bottom hole temperature1984-04
39 High-resolution geochemical variations at Sites 723, 728, and 731: a comparison of X-ray fluorescence and geochemical logsGeochemical logging is a routine part of the Ocean Drilling Program, yet the reliability of ODP geochemical logs has rarely been evaluated quantitatively. On ODP Leg 117, geochemical logs were obtained at Sites 723, 728, and 731. We report here an evaluation of ODP geochemical log quality based on h...1991
40 Horizontal sediments of the lower Omo valley: the kibish formationThe existence of old lacustrine deposits in the Lake Rudolf Basin was first recognized by Hohnel et al.
