In another paper, whose authors are from Universidad Central de Venezuela, several crude oils from the Maracaibo basin are characterized, identifying two types of source rocks: marine shale and terrigenous.
A third article proposes a methodology for full-waveform inversion processing based on a synthetic data set, showing how each step of processing affects the results.
From the Autonomous University of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, and the University of La Rioja, Spain, an article develops a feasibility analysis of using wind energy in Ciudad Juarez, concluding that it is not feasible to install wind turbines in this city.
