The data set shows performance of economical calcium phosphate cement (Fondu) blended with fly ash, class F (FAF) in carbon steel corrosion protection tests (corrosion rate, corrosion current and potential), bond- and matrix strength, as well as matrix strength recovery after imposed damage at 300C. The corrosion protection and lap-shear bond strength data are given for different Fondu/FAF ratios, the matrix strength data recoveries are reported for 60/40 weight % Fondu/FAF ratios. Effect of sodium phosphate on bond strength, corrosion protection and self-healing is demonstrated.

Fugro Gravity and Magnetics Services (Houston) with Fugro Electro Magnetics Italy Srl carried out a full tensor, broadband magnetotelluric survey of 59 soundings under contract from University of Alaska. Two MT field teams deployed up to 3 MT systems each (ADU-07e Metronix receivers and sensors) for overnight recording, thus producing up to 6 MT soundings per day. Fieldwork was completed between August 13 and August 28, 2012. Inversion for 3D resistivity structure was performed using the Fugro RLM-3D MT code. Full tensor complex impedances were inverted in the frequency range from 0.032 Hz to 5.62 kHz, using 4 frequencies per decade, on a 384 core cluster. Both unconstrained (blind) and constrained inversions were carried out. For the constrained inversion, the starting and a priori model in 3D inversions included shallow structure from resistivity-depth maps obtained from the Resolve airborne EM survey, conducted by Fugro Airborne Surveys Corp., Mississauga, Canada. Report 78 pages, Append. A-D. 50 Figures, 8 Tables.

This dataset is based on the Geologic Map of North America (scale 1 to 3,000,000, Reed et al., 2005) from DDS 424 (Garrity and Soller, 2009) and the Sherrod et al. (2007) compilation of Hawaii (scale 1 to 100000). The dataset is distributed as the USA USGIN 3M Geology Web Map Service (WMS) by the Arizona Geological Survey for inclusion with One Geology. Data were prepared by clipping data from Garrity and Soller (2009) to the boundaries of the United States including the offshore exclusive economic zone, as defined by NOAA (coastalmap.marine.usgs.gov/GISdata/basemaps/boundaries/eez/NOAA/useez_noaa.htm). US Pacific Island territories are not included. Data for Hawaii were acquired from Sherrod et al. (2007), and units were reclassified to better match the granularity of the Reed et al. (2005) map, and boundaries between reclassified units were dissolved to simplify the map. Offshore data around Hawaii were not found that could be included in the compilation. Data from Garrity and Soller (2009) and the Sherrod et al. (2007) generalization were merged into a single database using the NCGMP09 data structure (USGS NCGMP, 2010). Representative lithology and age properties were associated with each map unit. These property values are specified using CGI vocabularies for rock type (CGI Simple Lithology, resource.geosciml.org/Vocab2011html/SimpleLithology201012.html) and stratigraphic age (International Stratigraphic Chart, 2009-08, resource.geosciml.org/ISC2009/CGI2011TimeScale.rdf). Finer-scale granularity on some polygon-level representative lithology and age assignments than that presented in the Reed et al. (2005) mapping using the state geologic map compilation by the USGS Mineral Resources Division (e.g. Ludington et al., 2007). Data were exported from the NCGMP09 database into database tables conforming to the CGI GeoSciML Portrayal schema, and web services are deployed using these tables as the data source. Spatial data from Garrity and Soller (2009) has been reprojected into WGS 1984 decimal degrees. The Web map service view of the data presents three portrayals, based on representative age, representative lithology and lithostratigraphy. The representative age portrayal uses the color scheme presented on the International Stratigraphic Chart, 2009-08 (pdf cached at resource.geosciml.org/ISC2009/ISChart2009.pdf). RGB and CMYK colors for this legend were imported from OneGeology Europe color scheme (Asch et al., 2009, accessed at onegeology-europe.brgm.fr/how_to201002/OneGeologyWP3-DataSpec_Portrayal_v 201 205KA.doc, Table 1-1). The color scheme for the representative lithology portrayal was updated from a scheme developed by the GeoSciML workgroup (thanks to Eric Boisvert, GSC) using URN identifiers; the colors in that scheme were creatively adapted from Moyer,Hasting and Raines (2005, pubs.usgs.gov/of/2005/1314/of2005-1314.pdf) which provides xls spreadsheets for various color schemes. Most of the colors come from lithclass 6.1 and 6.2 (see www.nadm-geo.org/dmdt/pdf/lithclass61.pdf for lithclass 6.1). The lithostratigraphic scheme was created from the map legend included with Garrity and Soller (2009) by removing overlay patterns because they are incompatible with OGC Styled Layer Description (SLD) of map symbolization, and adjusting colors to preserve distinction between map units defined by Reed et al. (2005). Portrayal of the contact and fault themes use conventional geologic map symbolization. Additional feature classes that can not be mapped into the GeoSciML Portrayal scheme are included on the Reed et al. (2005) map and were digitized by Garrity and Soller (2009). These features are not currently exposed via web services. The additional features were clipped to the extent of the US geology polygons, and have been included in the NCGMP09-format geodatabase distribution of this dataset. Miscellaneous geologic line features including special submarine features, calderas, glaciation extent, impact structure outlines from Reed et al. (2005) were digitized by Garrity and Soller (2009) into a variety of feature classes. These were merged into a single otherLines feature class in the NCGMP09 version of the dataset. FeatureType terms correspond to the names of the original feature classes or feature types within the original feature classes if there were multiple kinds of features. Miscellaneous geologic point features including diapirs, mineral occurrences, gas seeps, hydrothermal vents, unusual igneous rock occurrences, volcanic vents from Reed et al. (2005) were digitized by Garrity and Soller (2009) into a variety of feature classes. These were merged into a single geoPointFeature feature class as an extension to the NCGMP09 model in this dataset. FeatureType terms correspond to the names of the original feature classes or feature types within the original feature classes if there were multiple kinds of features. Miscellaneous geologic overlay polygons that delineate areas of metamorphism, continental deposits, zones of abundant diapirs, and offshore outcrops (?) from Reed et al. (2005) were digitized by Garrity and Soller (2009) into multiple feature classes. These were merged back into a single OverlayPoly feature class of the NCGMP09 model. FeatureType terms correspond to the names of the original feature classes or feature types within the original feature classes if there were multiple kinds of features.

This project aims to develop an innovative Geothermal ThermoElectric Generation (G-TEG) system specially designed to both generate electricity and extract high-value lithium (Li) from low-temperature geothermal brines. The process combined five modular technologies including silica removal, nanofiltration (NF), membrane distillation (MD), Mn-oxide sorbent for Li recovery, and TEG. This project provides a proof of concept for each of these technologies.

This is the final report from the project. It includes corrections and the final data. The final report supersedes all previous submissions. This is the final report from the project.

Input and output files used for fault characterization through numerical simulation using iTOUGH2. The synthetic data for the push period are generated by running a forward simulation (input parameters are provided in iTOUGH2 Brady GF6 Input Parameters.txt [InvExt6i.txt]). In general, the permeability of the fault gouge, damage zone, and matrix are assumed to be unknown. The input and output files are for the inversion scenario where only pressure transients are available at the monitoring well located 200 m above the injection well and only the fault gouge permeability is estimated. The input files are named InvExt6i, INPUT.tpl, FOFT.ins, CO2TAB, and the output files are InvExt6i.out, pest.fof, and pest.sav (names below are display names).

The table graphic in the data files below summarizes the inversion results, and indicates the fault gouge permeability can be estimated even if imperfect guesses are used for matrix and damage zone permeabilities, and permeability anisotropy is not taken into account.
