20130026354METHODS, SYSTEMS, AND COMPUTER PROGRAM PRODUCTS FOR MEASURING THE DENSITY OF MATERIAL INCLUDING AN ELECTROMAGNETIC MOISTURE PROPERTY DETECTOR - The subject matter described herein includes methods, systems, and computer program products for measuring the density of a material. According to one aspect, a material property gauge includes a nuclear density gauge for measuring the density of a material. A radiation source adapted to emit radiation into a material and a radiation detector operable to produce a signal representing the detected radiation. A first material property calculation function may calculate a value associated with the density of the material based upon the signal produced by the radiation detector. The material property gauge includes an electromagnetic moisture property gauge that determines a moisture property of the material. An electromagnetic field generator may generate an electromagnetic field where the electromagnetic field sweeps through one or more frequencies and penetrates into the material. An electromagnetic sensor may determine a frequency response of the material to the electromagnetic field across the several frequencies.01-31-2013
20130068940SPECTROSCOPIC NANOSENSOR LOGGING SYSTEMS AND METHODS - Logging systems and methods that employ nanosensors to obtain spectral measurements downhole. The nanosensors can be dispersed in borehole fluids (including cement slurries) that circulate, diffuse, or get injected in a borehole. Because the nanosensors have diameters on the order of 03-21-2013
20110290992SYSTEM AND METHOD OF OPTICAL MEASUREMENTS FOR WELLBORE SURVEY - A system of optical measurements for wellbore survey comprises a light conveyable cable, an optical measurement apparatus optically coupled to one end of the light conveyable cable, and a light source optically coupled to another end of the light conveyable cable. The light source produces light used for optical measurements in the optical measurement apparatus.12-01-2011
20090045327AERIAL-SUPPORTED PROCEDURE FOR EXPLORATION OF HYDROCARBON DEPOSITS - The present invention refers to an aerial-supported procedure for the exploration of hydrocarbon deposits, especially crude oil and gas deposits, using fluorescence procedures, including aerial-supported geo-referencing of the detected locations by means of a digital terrain model, employing biosensors which are sensitive to hydrocarbons.02-19-2009
20080245959ADJUSTED LASER BEAM CONTAMINANT PROCESSING - Processing soil in a land area contaminated with one or more contaminates that are elements having one or more respective NMR values. Examples of the contaminates are the heavy metals. The processing includes generating a plurality of base laser beams at base frequencies with one base laser beam for each NMR value. The base laser beam is typically 635 nm corresponding to a base frequency of 1.5748 MHz. The base frequency is adjusted in response to the NMR values to form an adjusted processing beam. The adjusted processing beam is focused to form focused processing beam. The soil is then irradiated with a scan pattern that covers the land area.10-09-2008
20090166520IN-SITU SOIL NITRATE ION CONCENTRATION SENSOR - A method and apparatus for near real-time in-situ soil solution measurements is presented. An outer sleeve is placed in soil where ionic concentrations of organic or inorganic species are to be measured. A porous section connects with the outer sleeve (the porous section initially loaded with distilled water) equilibrates with the solution present in soil pores to form a solution to be measured. The initial distilled water is displaced within the porous section by a removable plunger. After substantial equilibration of the solution to be measured within the apparatus, the plunger is removed and a removable probe replaced. The probe may be an Ion Selective Electrode, or a transflection dip probe. The probe then may be used under computer control for measurement of solution properties. The Ion Selective Electrode may measure nitrate (NO07-02-2009

Radiation is directed away from the pig to irradiate the inner surface of a pipeline when the pig is driven through the pipeline by fluid and thereby disinfects the inner surface of the pipeline.06-04-2009
20100187411RADON MONITORING SYSTEM FOR EARTHQUAKE PREDICTION - The present invention is related to a system for monitoring radon emissions to predict earthquakes. In one embodiment, the present invention relates to a radon monitoring system that is designed to remotely monitor the release of radon gas and to use such data in the prediction of earthquakes.07-29-2010
20100001179METHOD OF PROCESSING ROCK WITH LASER AND APPARATUS FOR THE SAME - An object is to provide a method capable of boring a borehole even when quartz glass or silicon dioxide is deposited as molten dross by laser irradiation. A laser irradiation position of a workpiece is irradiated with a laser having wavelength of 1.2 μm or longer and a high factor of absorption into liquid, for example, a CO2 laser, from a laser oscillator through liquid. By high pressure generated in an advancing microbubble flow occurring in the liquid, molten dross is scattered. Thus, the processing, such as boring, of the rock is performed.01-07-2010
