My One Year Blogiversary

I celebrated my first blogiversary today, I'm proud of being the first Arab Geoblogger.  I will continue this post in Arabic cause it's easy to write my thoughts and musing in Arabic or that what i think, you can use google translate to keep reading.

درست علم الأرض حباً في ذلك العلم وتقرباً لله عزوجل، لنفع البشرية و لتعمير الأرض و لم أري ديناً يسعي لذلك بمنهج عملي سوي الإسلام. كما إننا معشر

وتأبي الذاكرة

لن تفقد ذاكرتي ذلك المشهد وأنا أراقب شروق الشمس، وأشعتها التي تتلألأ علي ضفاف النيل من نافذة ذلك المبني المرتفع في مدينة أسيوط، بينما كنت اُعدل من ياقة قميصي وأساوره، وعقلي شاحذاً اُفكر  في هموم الدراسة وقلبي يئن شوقاً علي ماتركت مهاجراً... وأنتهي بإستنشاق نسيم الصباح وزفرة ألم مسموعة أهمُ بالذهاب إلي الجامعة.

حول لقاء د . خالد عوده و الإكتشاف الجديد في بحر الرمال

يبدو أن عمليات براءات الإختراع وملكية الإكتشافات لا تسجل بسهولة في مصر ولذلك أعلن أستاذ الجيولوجيا  بجامعة أسيوط خالد عبدالقادر عودة عن إكتشافة واحات في بحر الرمال وأدلة وصول مياه الخزان النوبي إليها جوفياً، وأعلن ذلك خشية سرقة إكتشافه. هل وصل الأمر إلي هذا الحد في مصر؟! حتي بعد الثورة! وإذا كان هذا حال أستاذ جامعي ذو مكانة في المجتمع، فكيف بحال جيولوجيين خريجين من أمثالي؟!
http://youtu.be/-KkW52ZGCdE
يبقي سؤال بخاطري لـ د. عودة، ماهو تأثير مشروع توصيل مياه البحر لمنخفض القطارة علي المياة الجوفية بالمنخفض والمنطقة المحيطة وما حولها من الواحات الجديدة المُكتشفة في بحر الرمال؟
أستكمل فكرتي عن تهجير سكان الدلتا التي كتبت عنها في التدوينة السابقة، كنت أقول إلي أية مكان.... الأن أقترح أن يكون مكانهم الواحات الجديدة ببحر الرمال بالصحراء الغربية. وبدلاً من البحث عن مكان للسكان المهجرين الأن يمكن تهجيرهم و إستصلاح أراضي الواحات الجديدة، وإخلاء الدلتا وتخصيصها للمشروعات الزراعة فقط. سيؤدي ذلك إلي زيادة المساحة الزراعية المصرية. وإضافة ناتج قومي زراعي إستراتجي.
 و لا أزال أكرر أن المساعي السياسية ا…

كشف جيولوجي في بحر الرمال العظيم بالصحراء الغربية

Image
كشف الدكتور خالد عبدالقادر عودة أستاذ الجيولوجيا بجامعة أسيوط أن واحات جديدة تماماً لم يصل إليها الكشف الجيولوجي في بحر الرمال العظيم بالصحراء الغربية، وبها نحو 3.7 مليون فدان يمكن زراعتها، مكوَّنة من الحجر الرملي النوبي، وتعد الخزان الجوفي الرئيس للمياه الجوفية بمصر.



أري إن هذا الإكتشاف جاء في التوقيت الخاطئ خاصة وأنه جاء في وقت دعاية وإعلان عن أن مصر تستطيع أن تسد إحتياجاتها من الماء، في الوقت الذي تم تخفيض حصة مصر من نهر النيل، وبعد فشل المساعي السياسية عن إيقاف سد الألفية بأثيوبيا الذي سيدمر الزراعة ويهدد المواطن المصري بشكل مباشر، و سيعود علي الإقتصاد الزراعي بكارثة أترقبها.
 لست أتهم أحداً بشئ او انوه ضد أحداً بتهمة أو خلافة، ولكني مثل تلك المشاريع أراها لن تفيد مادام عندنا أكبر نهر بالعالم أنتركه ونحفر اباراً بصحراء مجهولة، ولن يذهب الشباب لها، لأن الشباب يريد مردود سريع وليس بعد عدة عقود، أم أن هذه التصريحات فقط لتهدئة الشعب المصري وطمئنتة أنه لن يموت عطشاً، هناك أراضي بالدلتا أفضل من بحر المال بكثير، وماذا عن الصالحية الجديدة أليست أخصب من بحر الرمال!؟

نصائح للمترجمين

إقرأ المعني الأصلي لنقطة تقدرها وقف عند معناها أو نهايتها، فكر في المصطلاحات المعقدة، تخيل نفسك تقولها لصديقك الان! الذي يهتم ويحب أن يسمع عنها. قلها له بسهولة لكن بدقة. ثم ابعد نفسك عن الأصل وحولها/أعد كتابتها بلغتك، في اسلوب سلس كأنك تتكلم مع صديقك، لا تترجم ترجمة صعبة، لا تصعب السهل لكي تُظهر قدراتك. إستخدم روح الترجمة وليس المعني الحرفي للكلام. كن دقيق للحقائق والتفاصيل – إعتن بالجودة  وركز علي المقاصد التي لابد أن تكون كاملة ومفهومة.

Accretionary Wedge #38: Back to School

In response of Anne Jefferson questions for Accretionary Wedge #38:
If you are a current or future student… what do you want to know about life and careers in the geosciences? Are there things you aren’t getting to learn or do in classes that you think are important? What sort of experiences do you want to get out of school and how do you think school can or should help you prepare for a career?
My respond here focus on, the method of studying geology. It's helpful to study how particular branch of geoscience are developed, like how continental drift theory are become the most accepted theory, but it's not necessary to study how seismic investigation are developed thorough the time. Students need to know how to interpret a seismic section; not to know who developed that branch of science so the large introductions of any subject in collage is like wasting the time. How is this branch of science work? why it useful? and how can i use it? that what i think is  important in studyin…

Science Online London: FEAR of science blogging!

How is the web changing science? Join Science Online London 2011 to find out. My brain tried to find out that with others on twitter the best brainstorming online tools on web. I tweet a lot of thoughts, and questions about science blogging and science policies during the live stream. And here is some of the problem that I'm interested in it. Personally i hate speaking on behalf of employers or organizations, I hate that fear of say something unprofessionally, specially when you wondering or blogging about your job or your career. You know that style of speaking/blogging "I'm awesome and my employer/organization is the best" we say that, because we don't want to loss our jobs.

The White Desert, Accretionary Wedge #37

Mushrooms Image via Wikipedia


The White Desert is located at the northern region of the Farafra Oasis. I had visited it within field trip to western desert. The white desert has been classified by government of Egypt as a natural protected zone in 2002 and covers an area of 3010 square kilometers. It's far 570 km from Cairo. The White desert is a unique geological phenomenon; where wind and water erosion sculptured their way through the soft chalk forming incredible shapes "Mushrooms". Along the road Baharia - Farafra, the main geological observations as many isolated hills and hillocks consisting almost of massive bedded, snow white chalk of Maastrichtian Khoman Formation. There are many fascinating geomorphologic feature accompanied the carbonate rocks of the plateau surface such as cave deposits and onyx,

Science Blogging Q&A

Image
There was some questions in my mind when i start my blog, How to make a good blog? How to blog? What is the best style for science blogging? I got some good answer lately, I think it's useful enough to share it here with sci bloggers who want know the answer or have answers of the following questions.

What is the best blogging service for scientists (Blogger, Wordpress, tumblr, or Posterous etc.)?

Obbie King: The best blog for a scientist (or anyone, for that matter) is the one that that particular person finds most comfortable to work with and that most effectively communicates the content he/she is presenting. I would suggest "playing around" with some of the more popular platforms, look for ways to make it "look" the way you want, and decide which platform makes you feel more comfortable. You then may wish to get help from someone who's well-versed in your chosen service to set up the fine details and get you rolling.

Aquifers Properties: Specific Yield and Specific Retention

Image
In an aquifer with a water table (unconfined aquifer), the volume of water released from groundwater storage per unit surface area of aquifer per unit decline in the water table is known as the specific yield, Sy. also known as the drainable porosity. Hydrologists divide water in storage in the ground into the part that will drain under the influence of gravity (called specific yield) and the part that is retained as a film on rock surfaces and in very small openings (called specific retention). The physical forces that control specific retention are the same forces involved in the thickness and moisture content of the capillary, fringe.

Aquifers Properties: Porosity (n)

Image
Aquifers Properties: Porosity (n)
The porosity of a soil or rock is that fraction of a given volume of material that is occupied by void space, or interstices. Porosity, indicated by the symbol (n), is usually expressed as the ratio of the volume of voids. Most rocks naturally contain a certain percentage of voids that can be occupied by water.



Origin of Wadi Elbattekh - وادي البطيخ Accretionary Wedge #36

Image
This month is a tough  Accretionary Wedge announced by Geosciblog:
"What do you regret leaving behind at a geological locality?"
In other words, what samples, specimens, or even photographs do you regret "not getting enough of"?

OK, Wadi Elbattekh or وادي البطيخ my translation is "Watermelon Valley" it's a Wadi filled with strange rock shape and very soft in touch (Like talc without leaving powder trace in your hand). I think the origin of this rocks is still a mystery. In the photos below you see how it's beauty and strange in shape. Unfortunately no result or data about that wadi on internet!





Prof. Atteff Hosni was the guider for this field trip. I remember the frame of geohisory about it, what he said about the origin of that shape. He guess those Battekhes transferred in desert by stream and become in a

Location of Lost Circulation Zone Dilemma

Image
Lost Circulation is one of the major drilling problem geologists and drilling engineer’s struggling it while drilling a well for both oil/gas and groundwater. If a very porous, cavernous or highly fractured zone is encountered while drilling; an excessive amount of drilling mud is lost to that zone during lost circulation. The zone is called a thief or lost circulation zone. In this case I’ll explain dilemma I faced while drilling groundwater well in North Sinai, Egypt we expecting the aquifer at 1200m. Within drilling community North Sinai distinguishing by repetitive Lost Circulation. I joking with my colleagues we need to invent (Lost Circulation Preventer) instead of (Plow out Preventer). That lead me to design Excell worksheet to make cement job calculation easy work, because I think every repetitive work should has a system to make it done.

The following table is the important data about lost circulation zones:

2012: Ice Age declares war on the theory!

http://youtu.be/zxbiNWSNPTk

After watching this movie, my personal opinion about 2012 Ice Age is the most stupid science fiction movie I have ever seen; everything is not realistic. Even the main idea (declares war on the glaciers) is not realistic.

I think this movie show the ‘next ice age’ as a theory in a bad way to promote global warming theory.

أطلس مخاطر التغيرات المناخية على السواحل المصرية والسياسات الدفاعية الواجبة

بغض النظر عن ما إذا كنت تؤمن بالتغير المناخي أم لا! فقد قدم الدكتور خالد عودة أطلس مخاطر التغيرات المناخية على السواحل المصرية والسياسات الدفاعية الواجبة  كأحد أهم الإنجازات العلمية في مصر. حيث يعتبر تقدير حجم الخسائر الاقتصادية والبشرية فى الدلتا المصرية بسبب ارتفاع منسوب سطح البحر بمقدار لا يتجاوز مترا واحدا، مسألة ذات أهمية قصوى. وهذه المخاطر لا تقتصر على خسارة بعض الشواطئ السياحية كما يتصور بعض المسؤولين من صناع القرار، وإنما تتعدى ذلك بكثير لتشمل فى الحد الأقصى 5920 كم2 من الأراضى الزراعية والسكنية والصناعية والطرق والترع والمصارف والمرافق المقامة عليها، علاوة على الحصار البحرى لمئات المدن والقرى والعزب والنجوع التى تبلغ جملة مساحاتها نحو 2113 كم2.

Favorite Geology Word: Isopach (Accretionary Wedge #35)

Image
This my first post to  Accretionary Wedge Geoscience Blog Carnival. The current topic for AW#35 is “ What's Your Favorite Geology Word? ” hosted by .
My Favorite Geology Word Is - Isopach
Definition: A contour that connects points of equal thickness. Commonly, the isopachs, or contours that make up an isopach map, display the stratigraphic thickness of a rock unit as opposed to the true vertical thickness. Isopachs are true stratigraphic thicknesses; i.e., perpendicular to bedding surfaces.(Source)
Pronunciation:  'ī-sə-ˌpak

Date:  approximately 1918

Structure map includes an isopach of the reservoir with contours shown in red dashes. Venezuela Well Evaluation Conference, 1997, page 2-26


Isopach is a Map of the thickness variation of a stratigraphic unit; used in geological exploration for oil and for underground structural analysis.  I always love to draw it due to it's importance to evaluate a reservoir or aquifer in subsurface geology.

Home: life on Earth كسرة خبز وملح وفيلم وثائقي

كسرة خبز وملح وفيلم وثائقي ولتذهب الدنيا بهمومها للجحيم.

The appearance of life on Earth was the result of a balance between elements that took billions of years to stabilize. Humans have profited from the lavish resources of the Earth, but have changed the face of the world by the use they have made of it. The harnessing of petroleum and its subsequent over-exploitation are having dramatic consequences for our planet. Human beings must change their behavior and their way of life before it is too late for them, their descendants and life on Earth.

Sannur Caves in BeniSuef

Image
Sannur Cave is characterized by the presence of geological formations known as Stalactites and Stalagmites in a perfect beautiful formed over millions of years, about 60 million years ago dates back to the Era of Middle Eocene. Leakage of aqueous solutions of calcium carbonate saturated through the roof of the cave and then evaporated, leaving the mineral salts that accumulated in the form of deposits of stalactites and stalgmites. Sannur cave extends a distance of about 700 m, breadth about 15 m and depth is about 15 m. It’s Located in Beni Suef province, Egypt. about 70 kilometres southeast of the city. The cave is important to the scarcity of such natural formations “Egyptian Alabaster” as it is of great importance for researchers, Geologists, and Caving fans.

الإحترار العالمي: وجهة نظر أخري

ماذا لو كان الاحترار العالمي ليس نتيجة لزيادة مستوي ثاني اكسيد الكربون في الغلاف الجوي؟! ماذا لو كان من الشمس نفسها! لا أحد يستطيع قياس درجة حرارة الناتجة عن التفاعل الهيدروجيني داخل مركز الشمس ويصعب تقدير الحرارة التي تصل إلي الارض، و بالتالي يمكن ان تكون الحرارة الزائدة القادمة من الشمس هي السبب في الاحترار العالمي.

Cleaning the environment from the dirty oil

I watched amazing documentary film about Mega structures: Black gold fields on National Geographic Channel Abu Dhabi. Extraction of the petroleum deposit in Canada required Mega structures. Oil sands will be the future of the oil industry. Shell challenge Syncrude in better production, but Shell system for extraction oil from sands uses large amount of water, producing waste water. Officially they use this water for planting wood, but the trees required long time to grow and use this large amount of the waste water. what make me blog this post is Shell environmental engineer opinion: look at the bright side! we are cleaning the sand from the oil, we cleaning the environment from the dirty oil!!

Colors on Geology: Culture Problem

Colors on Geologic Time Scale or on Geologic Maps form a problem to all geologists around the world, there are many standards  in color. I'll not speak about the history of colors or the culture behind the difference in colors, Geologic maps rely on color to symbolize the different ages of rocks. same area can be mapped in different colors, and you can use one or two reference to geologic time scale. USGS have standards and BGS have another standards, it's not the problem of 'Colors' and 'Colours'. When biologists made one DNA standards, they work on  the Human Genome Project to mapping the Human genome, the complete code of the human genome is one of the best science achievements. All Geologists need one standard for the geological time scale, or for Geologic Maps whatever it's source (origin) or it's culture. one standard is important for many scientific reasons.
