Questions related to Guyana
Offshore Oil Production:
Will South America’s offshore oil production overtake North America’s offshore oil output in the next couple of years?
South America (Brazil, Guyana and Suriname) to lead the post-pandemic recovery of offshore?
The Solid Waste Technical Team of the Faculty of Environmental Engineering at the National Engineering University (ETRS-FIA-UNI) in Peru (South America) has developed a novel methodology for the characterization of household waste, which does not require fieldwork. This participatory methodology trains participants in waste segregation and motivates them to continue with the practice after the study is finished. Along with the characterization study, a survey is applied to find out the changes that the pandemic has had in the generation, storage and segregation of household waste.
Last year we implemented a total of 9 studies in 3 countries (Peru, Honduras and Panama) with nearly 400 participants. As a result we have published an article (
Based on the lessons learned from last year, on 2021 we’re making some adjustments in the methodology to get a better grasp on (i) quantitative and perceived changes on solid waste due to the pandemic and (ii) relevant behavior aspects to ensure sustained waste segregation habits.
We now have two more cities on board (from Mexico and Guyana) and we’re looking for more strategic partners.
Please feel free to contact me if you’re interested to be part of this year’s research.
Greetings to all.
This skin represent an old museum sample (presumably collected in the late XIX century), the label says "Varanus species - British Guyana", but no Varanidae occur in the Neotropics. I thought it could belong to Tupinambis sp. but the pictures I found on the web do not seem to match.
For my research i am finding the short term solar radiation ramp rates that could be observed around United Kingdom. The short term could be 1-30 second.
Kindly suggest me the research which have these findings.
I have seen this video from BBC "Fire Ants and Techno-Chaos" which states that fire ants (mainly Solenopsis invicta) will attack electric equipments in the US, causing considerable damage and havoc. I have been working with fire ants for almost 10 years, but never in the US. I have made many observations in the field in South America (French Guyana, Uruguay, Brazil), and I have never seen them attacking electric installations there in their native range. On the other hand, I have observed some species of Camponotus, such as C. rufipes, making satellite nests in power boxes in gardens however I am not sure if they were really attracted by the electricity (dead power boxes also got colonised). My aunt lives in a heavily saevissima-infested region in Rio de Janeiro, and never had one equipment colonised by fire ants.
Thus I would like to ask US residents if, from their personal experience, they feel fire ants will enter equipments any more often than other local ants?
