Molecular Characterization and Comparison of Shale Oils Generated by Different Pyrolysis Methods

Outspide Publication: Energy & Fuels
Shale oils generated using different laboratory pyrolysis methods have been studied using standard oil characterization methods as well as Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry (FT-ICR MS) with electrospray ionization (ESI) and atmospheric photoionization (APPI) to assess differences in molecular composition.

Building on crossvalidation for increasing the quality of geostatistical modeling

Outside Publication: Stochastic Environmental Research and Risk Assessment 
Crossvalidation has been used in spatial statistics, mostly in kriging, for the analysis of mean square errors. An appeal of this approach is its ability to work with the same empirical sample available for running the algorithms. This paper goes beyond checking estimates by formulating a function sensitive to conditional bias.

Geochemical Database of Feed Coal and Coal Combustion Products

From Five Power Plants in the United States

USGS Publication: Data Series 635
The principal mission of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Energy Resources Program (ERP) is to (1) understand the processes critical to the formation, accumulation, occurrence, and alteration of geologically based energy resources; (2) conduct scientifically robust assessments of those resources; and (3) study the impacts of energy resource occurrence and (or) their production and use on both the environment and human health.
