Why we need renewable energy: An update on global warming

"My interests are in climate variability across a wide range of time scales. I'm particularly interested in how present day climate differs from climates in the past, and what may have caused climates to change. I have written or edited eleven books on climatic change and paleoclimatology, including Paleoclimatology: Reconstructing Climates of the Quaternary, and I've authored over 120 articles on these topics. My research group is supported by grants from NSF, NOAA, and the Department of Energy."

Drag Embedment Anchors for Offshore Floating Systems

One of the most commonly used foundation options for offshore moorings is a drag embedment anchor.  Owing to continued research and testing, a category of marine anchors has evolved into so called High Holding Power (HHP) drag embedment anchors.  Because of their very high efficiencies or performance ratios, the HHP anchors are used for offshore mooring of large floating units.  Today, many permanent as well as temporary and mobile floating units are anchored with HHP drag embedment anchors.  Vryhof Anchors alone has produced more than 9000 units of HHP anchors that have been used world
