COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus.

No known petroleum or mineral resources occur in Antarctica. The data on these subjects have been collected, mainly since the IGY (International Geophysical Year),as a part of other research carried out by geologists and geophysicists Petroleum and mineral resources of Antarctica book a number of countries.

Specific resource-related studies have not been made. Interest in the potential mineral resources of Antarctica has been expressed throughout the history of exploration of the continent.

This volume of the Antarctic Research Series results from an attempt to assemble a summary of current factual knowledge and scientific data related to issues of mineral resources in Antarctica.

Nowadays Kurdistan is emerging as one of the fastest developing areas in the Middle East with its universities playing a major role in this process. This book contains the proceedings of the First International Conference on Petroleum and Mineral Resources.

Manganese nodules, water (as ice), geothermal energy, coal, petroleum, and natural gas are potential resources that could perhaps be exploited in the future. On the basis of known mineral occurrences in Antarctica and relationships between geologic provinces of Antarctica and those of neighboring Gondwana continents.

Chapter Potential Mineral Resources in Antarctica 95 Box 4-A—Mineral Resources and Reserves A general classification for describing the status of mineral occurrences was developed by theU.S.

Geo- logical Survey and the U.S. Bureau of Mines in   While only a few exposed areas of Antarctica are considered to be potential mineral exploration targets, it’s worth noting that less than % of the Antarctic is exposed rock.

That, combined with the vast mineral wealth of it’s former Gondawanan neighbours, suggests a great exploration potential. Mining in Antarctica would be very difficult, dangerous and expensive as the climate is so harsh, the ice is very thick and Antarctica is very remote from major centres of population.

Warm up There are known reserves of oil and coal as well as mineral deposits in Antarctica, although detailed knowledge of these mineral deposits is sketchy. minerals. The mineral fuels like coal and petroleum are also non-metallic minerals. Minerals can be extracted by mining, drilling or quarrying (Fig ).

The process of taking out minerals from rocks buried under the earth’s surface is called mining. Minerals that lie. @article{osti_, title = {Petroleum and mineral resources of Antarctica}, author = {Behrendt, J.C.}, abstractNote = {Following the introduction, this publication contains the following papers: (1) Are there petroleum resources in Antarctica.

The Kurdistan region of Northern Iraq is one of the emerging areas in the Middle East, rich in oil, gas and mineral resources as well as underground water.

However, until recently the political and security issues were such that the region was unable to take advantage of these resources. The text provides descriptions of all major rock units found in Antarctica, as well as reviews of Antarctic palaeontology, geophysics, petroleum prospects, and mineral resources.

Special attention is drawn to the features of Antarctica that are significant from the wider perspectives of globalgeology. Evaporites, Petroleum and Mineral Resources Paperback – Ap by Judith L. Melvin (Editor) See all 3 formats and editions Hide other formats and editions.

INTRODUCTION This circular attempts to (1) pre~sent a sur­ vey of the known mineral resources of Ant­ arctica and (2) estimate Antarctica's mineral­ resource potential on the basis of known mineral occurrences in Antarctica and knownCited by: Some of the natural resources of Antarctica include its mineral deposits of iron ore, chromium, gold, copper, nickel, and platinum, marine wildlife and small reserves of coal and hydrocarbons.

The majority of human activities in Antarctica are not for commercial or economic purposes, but are rather centered on scientific research and pursuits.

2-The student will be able to explain how the resources are formed. 3-The student will be able to discuss the problems of economic recovery of Antarctica resources. CONTENT OBJECTIVES 1-The students will be know that the geology and mineral resources of Antarctica are determined from limited rock samples and inferences from plate tectonics.

Antarctica is not without rock and mineral resources, however, for physical and political reasons (see below) these are not exploited at the present time. Intriguingly, Antarctica is the best place in the world for finding meteorites.

Mineral occurrences have been found in some of these Antarctic areas, including antimony, chromium, copper, gold, lead, molybdenum, tin, uranium, and zinc. None approaches a grade or size warranting economic interest.

Also noneconomic are the very large deposits of coal and sedimentary iron. Legal Implications of Petroleum Resources of the Antarctic Continental Shelf In: Ocean Yearbook Mineral Resources of Antarctica (Reston, Va.: Geological Survey, ), pp.

ing: Antarctica. Other explorers created dreams of massive mineral resources, including coal and oil. By the early 20th century, more than a dozen countries had established whaling and sealing stations and made territorial claims on enormous chunks of Antarctica and its outlying islands.

A few scientific stations came up too. In another report on Antarctic resources, John Kingston, petroleum expert of the US Geological Survey, emphasizes that he does not endorse St. John’s assumptions. Not only is it extremely unlikely that Antarctica harbors billions of barrels of oil, but it is even questionable if the continent has any reserves that would be worth exploring.

British officials insist the measure is only to safeguard the country's interests in the area, in the event that the ban on mineral and petroleum exploitation changes. If accepted, this claim would cover more thansquare miles (, square km) of undersea territory.

In AugustKing Salman issued a royal decree and divided the ministry into two- Ministry of Industry and Mineral Resources, and Ministry of arters: Riyadh. Research has revealed that mineral resources are to be found under the ice in Antarctica, and oil and natural gas are found in offshore deposits.

Antarctica is a frontier for economic development that is not under the jurisdiction of any one government. The Antarctic Treaty has been the determinant of the level of human activity.The exploration of the Arctic for petroleum is considered to be extremely technically challenging.

However, recent technological developments, as well as relatively high oil prices, have allowed for a result, the region has received significant interest from the petroleum industry.
