A workshop on the Development of Unconventional Hydrocarbon Resources in the Appalachian Basin was held on September 9-10 by the National Academy of Sciences. The workshop covered the geology, hydrocarbon resources, and production of unconventional hydrocarbon resources in the Appalachian Basin; the potential effects of unconventional hydrocarbon production on surface and groundwater quality and quantity and on air quality; and the potential effects of unconventional hydrocarbon production on landscapes, ecosystems, and climate.
The workshop presentations are available online  for anyone interested in learning more about the current issues related to this theme.
