Investigation of deformation patterns by DS-InSAR in a coal resource-exhausted region with spaceborne SAR imagery
Along with the impact of energy structure adjustment as well as the coal resource exhaustion in the old mining region, the deformation over the abandoned mine region has severely restricted both the r
Preparing a Workforce for the New Blue Economy: Chapter 1 - Exploration and technology—key building blocks for the new blue economy
Preparing a Workforce for the New Blue Economy, People, Products and Policies, 2021, Pages 3-16
This book chapter advances SDGs 9, 13, and 15 by explaining how the blue economy of the future will be heavily dependent on national investments in ocean sciences, ocean-related technologies, and intelligent national policy creation about the national interest in the world ocean.
Preparing a Workforce for the New Blue Economy - Chapter 11: Influences and impact of the energy industry on the new blue economy and its workforce development
Preparing a Workforce for the New Blue Economy, People, Products and Policies, 2021, Pages 201-209
This book chapter addresses SDG 9 and 17 by explaining the evolution of the blue economy. From the moment it moved offshore, the oil and gas industry had a requirement for the skills of geotechnical engineers, geoscientists, meteorologists, and oceanographers to ensure that activities were conducted efficiently and safely, and a core element of the new blue economy was created. The migration into deeper water created new challenges, and the industry invests heavily in scientific studies, and research and development, to overcome them. In many cases, oil and gas companies form consortiums that support collaborative research conducted jointly by academic and industry scientists. As the level of engagement with the ocean observing community has grown, the industry has released much of its data into the public domain and supported the development of appropriate degrees and training to ensure that the new blue economy has a capable workforce. As the balance of energy moves away from hydrocarbons to renewable energy sources, and new industries emerge such as deep-sea mining, requiring the services of ocean scientists, the new blue economy created by the oil and gas industry will be well equipped to serve their needs.
Environmental Systems Science, Theory and Practical Applications, 2021, Pages 509-542
This book chapter advances SDGs 9, 13, and 15 by introducing techniques for assessing economics and feasibility to complement the technical and scientific rigor in environmental systems science. This includes attention to project planning and communicating decisions and working with stakeholders and emission reduction and prevention strategies, including fuel-related and air toxics strategies.
