Salt and Sediment Dynamics

Author: Ian Lerche
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 084937684X
Release Date: 1995-08-01
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Salt and Sediment Dynamics presents a thorough treatment of salt and sediment interactions and the implications of such interactions for sub-salt exploration. The book emphasizes and utilizes recent discoveries on many aspects of salt and sediment interactions, provides the theoretical framework for interpreting the increasing amount of available data on salt and sediments, and develops a self-consistent dynamical evolution model of salt structures and their interaction with surrounding sediments. The model developed in the text consists of an evolving salt structure that influences sediment motion with self-consistent evolution of sediments and salt shape. The resulting stress and strain in the sediments and the thermal focusing effects of the salt are evaluated. The salt and sediments in the model are consistent with observed geometries, a result of having freely adjustable, observation-controlled model parameters. In addition, the book describes case histories in a variety of geological settings, thus explaining aspects of the genesis and development of salt structures, of their impact on sedimentary structural evolution, and of the impact of sediments on salt masses. The techniques developed by the authors expand the current state of knowledge regarding the evolution and dynamics of salt structures and increase the potential for effective sub-salt hydrocarbon exploration.

The Carey Salt Mine

Author: Barbara C. Ulrich
Publisher: Arcadia Publishing
ISBN: 0738561800
Release Date: 2008
Genre: History

In 1923, Kansas governor Johnathan Davis traveled to Hutchinson to dedicate Emerson Carey's new rock salt mine whose shaft provided access to an ancient salt bed 650 feet under the earth's surface. The Carey Salt Mine, advertised as "the most modern in the world," served as a companion to Carey's already-existing evaporation plants. Miners used the newest technology to blast and crush the mineral into gravel and haul it to the surface to provide rock salt for livestock, industries, and roads. Throughout the 20th century, thousands visited Carey's mining operations. Ever since the day Governor Davis presided over the opening ceremony, the Carey Salt Mine has served as a landmark for Hutchinson and helped shape its identity as "the Salt City."

British Salt Limited and New Cheshire Salt Works Limited

Author: Great Britain. Competition Commission
Publisher: The Stationery Office
ISBN: 9780117036253
Release Date: 2005
Genre: Business & Economics

The Commissions report examines the position of the two companies and the market for pure dried vacuum salt and compacted salt; the relevant merger situation; competition prior to the merger and the counterfactual situation had the merger not occurred. The report concludes that the acquisition by British Salt Ltd of New Cheshire Salt Works Ltd is not expected to result in a substantial lessening of competition within any market or markets in the UK.

Salt Glands in Birds and Reptiles

Author: Malcolm Peaker
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 0521206294
Release Date: 1975
Genre: Science

The aim of the authors in writing this monograph has been to provide a comprehensive and critical, but personal account of salt glands. Papers on salt glands are scattered through a great many different journals. There is therefore a great need for a synthesis of what is known about salt glands. The means by which salt glands perform their vital function of forming and excreting a concentrated salt solution is of great biological importance in understanding salt and water relations in the cells of all living things. In addition to the basic physiology of salt glands there is consideration of their ecological importance, their interaction with other systems of the body, their role in non-marine birds and reptiles and their evolution. Salt glands have interested biologists from a wide range of disciplines. This book brings together the scattered literature and will be a convenient source of reference to those working in the field, as well as providing information for comparative studies and for teaching purposes.

Henry Salt

Author: Deborah Manley
Publisher: Libri Publications Ltd
ISBN: 190196504X
Release Date: 2001
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Henry Salt was one of the most important figures in early 19th century travel, archaeology and diplomacy. Celebrated for his expeditions to Abyssinia, Salt later became British Consul-General in Egypt, where he played an important diplomatic role. However, it is for his involvement in the re-discovery of ancient Egypt that he is best remembered. This study is an appreciation of this significant figure and brings to life a fascinating period in the history of Egypt and Abyssinia.
