Insights: A Laboratory Manual for Historical Geology.

Care and maintenance practices for laboratory balances range from the sublimely simple to concerns about gravitational forces.

At the simple end, cleaning balances requires little more than common sense. Taring vessels, usually stainless steel or glass, can go into the dishwasher or a dedicated cleaning tub. No special care need be taken, as even material losses due to scratches or pitting disappear after taring.

“Worrying about taring vessels is more a question of aesthetics than function,” observes Gilbert Vial, product manager for physical measurement at Shimadzu Scientific Instruments (Columbia, MD).

Insights: A Laboratory Manual for Physical Geology  covers a broad, general approach to core curriculum geology topics in support of physical geology. This book is beneficial for geology majors and non-majors as a powerful tool covering the basics of geology.  

Exercises, activities, full-color photos, topographic maps and the varied resources in this book will give students a good understanding of:

The keys and approaches in this manual not only teach students to recognize Earth materials, they teach them how to systematically identify them using a scientific approach and not simply memorizing their general appearance.

At the laboratory, Johnson Controls — in collaboration with its partner Optimum Energy — conducted a detailed engineering simulation and analysis which showed that by optimizing the central plant, facility managers could achieve greater operating efficiency, substantial energy savings and a significantly lower carbon footprint.

The plan focused on one of the 20 buildings on campus and called for the addition of variable speed drives on two chillers, two chilled water pumps, one glycol pump, two condenser water pumps and the implementation of CPO 30, powered by Optimum Energy.
