    Keywords: energy ; energy economics
    Notes: The global energy system is moving closer to a historic transformation. This year's edition of the International Energy Agency (IEA)'s comprehensive publication on energy technology focuses on the opportunities and challenges of scaling and accelerating the deployment of clean energy technologies. This includes looking at more ambitious scenarios than the IEA has produced before. Improvements in technology continue to modify the outlook for the energy sector, driving changes in business models, energy demand and supply patterns as well as regulatory approaches. Energy security, air quality, climate change and economic competitiveness are increasingly being factored in by decision makers. Energy Technology Perspectives 2017 (ETP 2017) details these trends as well as the technological advances that will shape energy security and environmental sustainability for decades to come. For the first time, ETP 2017 looks at how far clean energy technologies could move the energy sector towards higher climate change ambitions if technological innovations were pushed to their maximum practical limits. The analysis shows that, while policy support would be needed beyond anything seen to date, such a push could result in greenhouse gas emission levels that are consistent with the mid-point of the target temperature range of the global Paris Agreement on climate change. The analysis also indicates that regardless of the pathway chosen for the energy sector transformation, policy action is needed to ensure that multiple economic, security and other benefits to the accelerated deployment of clean energy technologies are realised through a systematic and co-ordinated approach. ETP 2017 also features the annual IEA Tracking Clean Energy Progress 2017 report, which shows that the current progress in clean energy technology development and deployment remains sub-optimal. It highlights that progress has been substantial where policies have provided clear signals on the value of technology innovation. But many technology areas still suffer from a lack of financial and policy support.

    Keywords: nanotechnology ; nanomaterials
    Notes: Versatility, extended compositional ranges, better homogeneity, lesser energy consumption, and requirement of nonexpensive equipments have boosted the use of sol-gel process on top of the popularity in the synthesis of nanosystems. The sol-gel technique has not only revolutionized oxide ceramics industry and/or material science but has also extended widely into multidimensional applications. The book Recent Applications in Sol-Gel Synthesis comprises 14 chapters that deal mainly with the application-oriented aspects of the technique. Sol-gel prepared metal oxide (MO) nanostructures like nanospheres, nanorods, nanoflakes, nanotubes, and nanoribbons have been employed in biomedical applications involving drug deliveries, mimicking of natural bone, and antimicrobial activities. The possibility of controlling grain size in aerogel and preparation of ultrahigh-temperature ceramic (UHTC)-based materials, fluorescent glasses, ultraviolet photosensors, and photocatalysts have been discussed in detail by the experts in the field. The usefulness of sol-gel materials as active GRIN, as textile finisher, and as leather modifier with water-repellent and oil-resistive properties would be an incentive for researchers keen to pursue the field. | Contents: Chapter 1: Facile Methodology of Sol-Gel Synthesis for Metal Oxide Nanostructures by Shrividhya Thiagarajan, Anandhavelu Sanmugam and Dhanasekaran Vikraman --- Chapter 2: Sol-Gel-Derived Silicon-Containing Hybrids by Maria Zielecka, Elzbieta Bujnowska, Katarzyna Suwala and Magdalena Wenda --- Chapter 3: Preparation of Ultra-High Temperature Ceramics–Based Materials by Sol-Gel Routes by Fei Li, Xiao Huang and Guo-Jun Zhang --- Chapter 4: Sol-Gel Synthesis, Structural Characterization and Microwave Dielectric Properties of Bismuth Niobate Modified by Iron Inclusion by Susana Devesa, Manuel P.F.

    Keywords: surfactants
    Notes: The surfactants are among the materials that have a significant importance in everyday life of human. The rapid growth in science and technology has opened new horizons in a very wide range, in which the surfactants play a major and vital role. Hence, the increasing number of applications as well as arising environmental issues has made this relatively old topic still a hot research theme. In the first section of this book, some of the applications of surfactants in various fields such as biology and petroleum industry, as well as their environmental effects, are described. In Section 2 some experimental techniques used for characterization of the surfactants have been discussed. | Contents: Chapter 1: Environmental Impact of the Use of Surfactants and Oxygenates in the Petroleum Industry by Tomasz Kalak --- Chapter 2: Recent Advances in Catanionic Mixtures by Darija Domazet Jurašin, Suzana Šegota, Vida Čadež, Atiđa Selmani and Maja Dutour Sikirć --- Chapter 3: Hydrophobic Polymers Flooding by Abdelaziz N.

  • Keywords: sedimentology ; reservoirs ; basins
    Notes: Paralic reservoirs reflect a range of depositional environments including deltas, shoreline-shelf systems and estuaries. They provide the backbone of production in many mature basins, and contribute significantly to global conventional hydrocarbon production. However, the range of environments, together with relative sea-level and sediment supply changes, result in significant variability in their stratigraphic architecture and sedimentological heterogeneity, which translates into complex patterns of reservoir distribution and production that are challenging to predict, optimize and manage. This volume presents new research and developments in established approaches to the exploration and production of paralic reservoirs. The 13 papers in the volume are grouped into three thematic sections, which address: the sedimentological characterization of paralic reservoirs using subsurface data; lithological heterogeneity in paralic depositional systems arising from the influence of tidal currents; and paralic reservoir analogue studies of modern sediments and ancient outcrops. The volume demonstrates that heterogeneity in paralic reservoirs is increasingly well understood at all scales, but highlights gaps in our knowledge and areas of current research. | Contents: Introduction to the sedimentology of paralic reservoirs: recent advances / Gary J.

    Keywords: analysis ; uncertainty quantification ; model calibration
    Notes: Uncertainty quantification may appear daunting for practitioners due to its inherent complexity but can be intriguing and rewarding for anyone with mathematical ambitions and genuine concern for modeling quality. Uncertainty quantification is what remains to be done when too much credibility has been invested in deterministic analyses and unwarranted assumptions. Model calibration describes the inverse operation targeting optimal prediction and refers to inference of best uncertain model estimates from experimental calibration data. The limited applicability of most state-of-the-art approaches to many of the large and complex calculations made today makes uncertainty quantification and model calibration major topics open for debate, with rapidly growing interest from both science and technology, addressing subtle questions such as credible predictions of climate heating. | Contents: Chapter 1: Introductory Chapter: Challenges of Uncertainty Quantification by Jan Peter Hessling --- Chapter 2: Polynomial Chaos Expansion for Probabilistic Uncertainty Propagation by Shuxing Yang, Fenfen Xiong and Fenggang Wang --- Chapter 3: State-of-the-Art Nonprobabilistic Finite Element Analyses by Wang Lei, Qiu Zhiping and Zheng Yuning --- Chapter 4: Epistemic Uncertainty Quantification of Seismic Damage Assessment by Hesheng Tang, Dawei Li and Songtao Xue --- Chapter 5: Uncertainty Quantification and Reduction of Molecular Dynamics Models by Xiaowang Zhou and Stephen M.
