About Me

My photo

I am an honours graduate (BSc. Hons. Strath-Glasgow) coupled with an MBA-ICG (Paris) , experienced, Metallurgist - Materials Scientist and Engineer & Manager turned Consultant & Blogger. I specialised in Superalloys (aero-engine_Seminal Work peer reviewed & published IOM3_MST, Feb.1985, the 2nd issue of this now well known journal dedicated to the fundamental aspects in our multidisciplinary subject area ) My experience over a wide range of Special Alloys is extensive. (Cryogenic,Controlled Expansion-Dilatometric,Magnetic, Corrosion Resistant Grades and finally HSLA-Aircraft Undercarriage. (Great Stuff-I was lucky) My responibilities were especially in Melting & Refining to 1st Forming stage. Responsibilities include QC,QA & Accounting, Melt/Remelt Process  & Products, R&D.  Bilingual English-French.

Chemical Sensing and Imaging Technology (hyperspectral imaging) to monitor (and model) vegetation globally will certainly help improve strategies to mitate CO2 emission behaviour and help measure the effects of Climate Change

The game's up - No weed, hopefully will go un-noticed by this most powerful COP (slang for policeman).

As the world, "once again" will meet to discuss GWG-global warming gases notebly CO2 emissions and Climate Change in Copenhagen (COP15) David Bannon CEO of Headwell Photonics reports in Nature Photonics Nov.09 Vol 3 p629 and acknowledges this Hyperspectral chemical sensing and imaging contribution from in two important US Space Agencies Sigma Space Centre and NASA's Goddard Space Flight Centre's Dr. Elizabeth Middleton.

Read the full story at the links provided. This extract focuses on Box 1 of the article but the principles of hyperspectral chemical sensing and imagery are delt with in D.Bannon's article.
