    How to Find Oil on Your Land

    How to Find Oil on Your Land. Initial searches for oil on land usually require the skills of geologists and geophysicists. These searches are often conducted by small exploration companies called wildcats. You will need Surface indications Geological correlations Gravitational field variations Magnetic properties Sound wave velocities and test well. Step 1. Look for obvious signs of oil on the surface of your land. Surface indications might include oil seeps or petroleum residue in soil samples. Step 2.

    Changing views on Zimbabwe’s land reform

    Zimbabwe’s land reform of 2000 was central to President Robert Mugabe’s re-election campaign. Mugabe argued that he was putting right the wrongs inherited from the colonial era, when black Zimbabweans were forced from their land in favour of white settlers. After 2000, most of the country’s 4,000 white farmers were evicted from their land, which was handed over to about 200,000 black Zimbabwean households. The programme has been widely misunderstood, presented as disastrous and a universal failure, with land captured by political cronies left idle and unproductive. This narrative has dominated the media and many academic commentaries, and influenced policy thinking across the region. But without solid field-based evidence, was…

    Find the Topography of Any Property in the World

    – [Seth] Hey everybody, this is Seth from the RE Tipster blog. I wanted to take just a few minutes here and show you a little trick that I have been using for the past few years. Whenever I’m trying to buy a vacant parcel of land, and it’s something that I think a lot of people don’t even really think about when they’re doing their research process but it’s really, really important. And that is to find out what the topography of the property is. And, basically, what that means is the actual elevations and hills, valleys, ravines, anything like that, or if it’s just a flat piece of…

    How Planes Land Sideways In High Winds

    Narrator: It’s not always a smooth and pleasant landing for airplanes. Intense strong winds can affect the position of how planes land on the runway, making it look like the plane is literally landing sideways. Here’s how planes land sideways in high winds. Landings like this actually have a name, crabbing. The name comes from the way crabs walk sideways across the beach. That’s kind of what the airplane looks like when it’s landing this way. Crabbing is usually needed because of high crosswinds. Les: The wind can either be blowing straight down the runway or 90 degrees to the runway or somewhere in between. And usually it’s somewhere in…

    If you own land, how far above and below do you own? | Educational Videos by Mocomi Kids

    If You Own Land, How Far Above and Below Do You Own? 1945 when a chicken farmer sued the US government for flying approximately 83 feet above his property. The noise of the airplane caused a bunch of his chickens to accidentally kill themselves by running into walls. The farmer won his case and the court agreed that although a property owner wasn’t entitled to own all of the air above their land, they were entitled to own enough so that planes flying overhead wouldn’t kill their chickens. If a person owns a piece of land, do they own it all the way down to the core of earth? When…
