Earth Sciences - Reports from Q.M. Yang and co-researchers add new data to research in earth sciences
2009 NOV 24 - (VerticalNews.com) -- According to recent research from Nanjing, People's Republic of China, "Based on the observational data in summer, the variations of intraseasonal oscillation (ISO) of the daily rainfall over the lower reaches of the Yangtze River valley (LYRV) were studied by using the non-integer spectrum analysis. The NCEP/NCAR reanalysis data for the period of 1979-2005 were analyzed by principal oscillation pattern analysis (POP) to investigate the spatial and temporal characteristics of principal ISO patterns of the global circulation. ...read more

2009 NOV 10 - (VerticalNews.com) -- According to recent research from New Delhi, India, "The ophiolitic melange occurs close to a major fault within the metavolcanics of Kanigiri area in the western margin of the Khammam-Nellore schist belt, Andhra Pradesh, India. The unique feature of Kanigiri melange is the occurrence of ophiolitic bodies of various sizes, most of which display petrological and geochemical characteristics typical of supra-subduction zone oceanic crust. ...read more
Earth Sciences - New earth sciences study results from K.R. Baiju et al described
2009 NOV 10 - (VerticalNews.com) -- According to recent research from Kochi, India, "Characterization of fluid inclusions in graphite-bearing charnockites from the southwestern part of the Madurai Granulite Block in southern India reveals a probable relation with the formation and break down of graphite during the high-grade metamorphism. The first-generation monophase pure CO2 inclusions, the composition of which is confirmed by laser Raman spectroscopy, recorded moderate density (0.77-0.87 g/cc) corresponding to low tapping pressure (around 2 kb) than that of the peak granulite-facies metamorphism. ...read more
