3rd GEOTECHNOLOGIEN Keynote lecture

30.03.2012
The Research and Development programme GEOTECHNOLOGIEN invites to its 3rd Keynote Lecture at the EGU General Assembly in Vienna.
Dr. Volker Steinbach, Head of The German Mineral Resources Agency, will talk about “Developments and Trends in the Availability of Non-Ferrous Mineral Raw Materials; with a Special Focus on High-Tech Metals”.

The worldwide demand for raw materials is continuously increasing. Apart from fossil fuels, a number of non-ferrous minerals are becoming more and more important for different industrial sectors, particularly for the high-tech industry. Caused by the shortage of specific minerals and their increasing prices the mining industry has been reactivated in various countries. Furthermore, agreements on raw material supply are of major interest, especially for developed countries.
Dr. Volker Steinbach, Head of The German Mineral Resources Agency, will talk about “Developments and Trends in the Availability of Non-Ferrous Mineral Raw Materials; with a Special Focus on High-Tech Metals” during the EGU conference in Vienna.

The talk takes place on April 24, 7 pm, room 13, Austria Center Vienna.

The key note lecture is an initiative of the research and development programme GEOTECHNOLOGIEN, a geoscientific programme funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the German Research Foundation (DFG).

To learn more about the R&D programme GEOTECHNOLOGIEN please visit us at our booth “Research in Germany” in the entrance hall (Booth No 25).

Im Focus: Frictional Heat Powers Hydrothermal Activity on Enceladus

Computer simulation shows how the icy moon heats water in a porous rock core

Heat from the friction of rocks caused by tidal forces could be the “engine” for the hydrothermal activity on Saturn's moon Enceladus. This presupposes that...

Im Focus: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....
