    Geothermal Energy: An Emerging Option for Heat and Power

    Geothermal energy could be called an “underground” renewable energy source not only because of its physical origin but also because its importance remains largely unknown to many decision makers and members of the public. Although historically high oil prices in the early 1980s ... Read More

    Shale Gas: Development Opportunities and Challenges

    The use of horizontal drilling and multistage hydraulic fracturing technologies has enabled the production of immense quantities of natural gas, to date principally in North America but increasingly in other countries around the world. The global availability of this resource creates both ... Read More

    Mining Groundwater for Sustained Yield

    Water is a critical resource, and groundwater is an important component of that resource. Water differs from other ground-based resources in that it is renewable: other extractive resources are expected to be depleted eventually, whereas it is possible to develop groundwater so that it will last ...

    Geologic Disposal of Spent Nuclear Fuel

    An Earth Science Perspective Climate change in the form of global warming is a widely accepted threat to humanity on a global scale and attributed at least in part to anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Nuclear power is a well-established source of electrical energy that produces ... Read More
