Most scientists agree that it is unlikely the LA River will never have the same groups of native species it did 100 years ago. That means that they are trying to return the river to the type of habitat preferred by native species, but realistically we can’t fully restore the river to what is was like before urban Los Angeles surrounded it. Some species are locally extinct an may never return. Plans may eventually include re-introducing some species (where humans move the animals back into the river), but they mostly rely on allowing them to return naturally.
For example the endangered Santa Ana sucker fish has been found upstream and, if the habitat in the lower parts of the river are improved, it may return on its own. In contrast, the native western pond turtle is a species of special concern and would likely need a captive-breeding program (where turtles are raised in captivity and returned to the river).
Urban ecologists see the LA River as being a combination of native and Introduced species, with the hope that as habitat improves, the shift will be towards more native species. In thinking about Introduced species in the river, it is not all bad. For example, the Introduced sunfish are a great food source for the native green herons.
Thinking about the information above, reply to at least two peers. Your replies should address how their proposal would impact your species in 1-2 short paragraphs.
State the name and taxonomic group for your species in your reply.
Would their proposal benefit your species? Or would it harm your species?
If your species increased in number, how would it impact your classmates’ species?
Why? You should reference specific at least two aspects of the species’ biology and ecology from your Individual Species Research.
This section provide an important data related to porosity and permeability in order to get a better understanding in reservoir and flow of different types of fluids using DHP (Digital Helium Porosimeter) and DGP (Digital Gas Porosimeter) devices also VINCI is one of the instruments that used for steady- state processes. SCAL sectio Special core analysis section are specialist in understanding petrophysical properties goes beyond special techniques with advance tests to help the client more in estimating their fields. It is important to note however, that SCAl provide several services in MICP (mercury injection and capillary pressure), FRF (formation resistivity factor), and permeability of fluids especially water, CT scan, and flush cleaning using different solvents. However, the department provides unique tests related to the above processes in order to ensure the delivery of good quality services and focus on saving costs to the customer. Therefore, SCAL section is responsible for different fluid analysis at several stages in order to fulfil all the operational requirements and to achieve important results that optimize production and development of the fields. Other sections Weatherford laboratories also provide some other services behind the services provided by CCA and SCAL. These services include the basic experiments and requirement to observe several parameters such as temperature, pressure, and type of gas. Summary of the internship I have implemented the internship in Weatherford Company, Is one of the international oilfield services company. The company has several sections and the section where I had training is the Weatherford laboratory and is considered one of the main sections in Weatherford. The Weatherford labs are located in Ghala Industrial Estate in Oman. The company offers internship opportunities to students in different departments for example wireline, product line which include laboratories, and finances related to their major and skills. During the 6 weeks of the internship program, several tasks were assigned to me according to my major and practical skills in all the 3 units of laboratory department. I spend one week and several days in each unit with multi tasks given whereby some are related to my studies and others are for the purpose of gaining new experience in other fields that are semi-related.>GET ANSWER
