  • Patent number: 8064288
    Abstract: A method for seismic event mapping includes adaptively velocity filtering seismic signals recorded at selected positions. The velocity filtered signals are transformed into a domain of possible spatial positions of a source of seismic events. An origin in spatial position and time of at least one seismic event is determined from space and time distribution of at least one attribute of the transformed seismic data.

  • Patent number: 7109366
    Abstract: The present invention provides a composition and process using the composition for removing metal ions from aqueous process solutions. These compositions include a non-metallic compound and a suitable carrier. In one embodiment, the non-metallic compound is a thiuram. In another embodiment, the non-metallic compound can further include a dithiocarbamate. These compositions are contacted with the metal ions in the aqueous process solution having a wetting agent to form an organometallic complex precipitate. The precipitate can then be separated from the aqueous solution.

  • Patent number: 6262392
    Abstract: A printed circuit board (1) includes a multi-layered structure. One of the layers (3) provides a heating layer such that heat applied to that layer (3) is transferred to electronic components (2) mounted on the board (1). The components (2) can thus be maintained at a suitable operating temperature. The heat can be supplied by ohmic heating of a resistive element within the printed circuit board (1). In an exemplary embodiment of the invention, one of a conducting layer and a ground or earthing layer of the printed circuit board (1) provides the heating layer (3).
