Shale Gas ExtractionHear from more than two dozen academic researchers as they present their findings regarding:

  • Biological, geological and environmental investigations
  • Fugitive methane migration and climate change
  • Air and water quality
  • Human and animal health
  • Social, political and legal aspects

The expressed purpose of the event, Facing the Challenges: Research on Shale Gas Extraction Symposium, is to provide an opportunity for researchers to present their work in a public forum and generate a peer-reviewed proceedings. A complete agenda, including a listing of participating researchers and the titles of their presentations, is available online.

The symposium is free and open to the public, but registration is required in order to save a seat.
