Oil Exploration
Hydrocarbon
Hydrocarbon
exploration (or oil and gas exploration) is the search by petroleum geologists and geophysicists for hydrocarbon deposits beneath the Earth's surface, such as oil and natural gas. Oil and gas exploration are grouped under the science of petroleum geology.Contents1 Exploration methods 2 Elements of a petroleum prospect 3 Exploration risk 4 Terms used in petroleum evaluation 5 Licensing 6 Reserves and resources6.1 Oil and gas reserves 6.2 Reserve booking7 See also 8 References 9 External linksExploration methods[edit] Visible surface features such as oil seeps, natural gas seeps, pockmarks (underwater craters caused by escaping gas) provide basic evidence of hydrocarbon generation (be it shallow or deep in the Earth). However, most exploration depends on highly sophisticated technology to detect and determine the extent of these deposits using exploration geophysics

Tropical Cyclone
A tropical cyclone is a rapidly rotating storm system characterized by a low-pressure center, a closed low-level atmospheric circulation, strong winds, and a spiral arrangement of thunderstorms that produce heavy rain. Depending on its location and strength, a tropical cyclone is referred to by different names, including hurricane (/ˈhʌrɪkən, -keɪn/),[1][2][3] typhoon (/taɪˈfuːn/), tropical storm, cyclonic storm, tropical depression, and simply cyclone.[4] A hurricane is a tropical cyclone that occurs in the Atlantic Ocean
Atlantic Ocean
and northeastern Pacific Ocean, and a typhoon occurs in the northwestern Pacific Ocean; while in the south Pacific or Indian Ocean, comparable storms are referred to simply as “tropical cyclones” or “severe cyclonic storms”.[4] “Tropical” refers to the geographical origin of these systems, which form almost exclusively over tropical seas

30th Parallel South
30 (thirty) is the natural number following 29 and preceding 31.Contents1 In mathematics 2 In science2.1 Astronomy3 In other fields 4 History and literature 5 Sports 6 Music 7 ReferencesIn mathematics[edit] Thirty is the sum of the first four squares, which makes it a square pyramidal number.[1]It is a primorial[2] 30 is the smallest sphenic number, and the smallest of the form 2 × 3 × r, where r is a prime greater than 3. 30 has an aliquot sum of 42; the second sphenic number and all sphenic numbers of this form have an aliquot sum 12 greater than themselves. Adding up some subsets of its divisors (e.g., 5, 10 and 15) gives 30, hence 30 is a semiperfect number.[3] 30 is the largest number such that all coprimes smaller than itself, except for 1, are prime.[4] A polygon with thirty sides is called a triacontagon. The icosahedron and the dodecahedron are Platonic solids with 30 edges

Oceanic Basin
In hydrology, an oceanic basin may be anywhere on Earth
Earth
that is covered by seawater but geologically ocean basins are large geologic basins that are below sea level. Geologically, there are other undersea geomorphological features such as the continental shelves, the deep ocean trenches, and the undersea mountain ranges (for example, the mid-Atlantic ridge and the Emperor Seamounts) which are not considered to be part of the ocean basins; while hydrologically, oceanic basins include the flanking continental shelves and shallow, epeiric seas.Contents1 History 2 See also 3 Notes 4 Further reading 5 External linksHistory[edit] Older references (e.g., Littlehales 1930)[1] consider the oceanic basins to be the complement to the continents, with erosion dominating the latter, and the sediments so derived ending up in the ocean basins
