WyGISC Friday Forum Series: Shale Gas, Wind and Water: Assessing the Potential Cumulative Impacts of Energy Development on Ecosystem Services within the Marcellus Play, Dr. Jeffrey Evans, Senior Landscape Ecologist, The Nature Conservancy

October 11, 2013

Global demand for energy has increased by more than 50 percent in the last half-century, and a similar increase is projected by 2030. This demand will increasingly be met with alternative and unconventional energy sources. Development of these resources causes disturbances that strongly impact terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems. The Marcellus Shale gas play covers more than 160,934 km2 in an area that provides drinking water for over 22 million people in several of the largest metropolitan areas in the United States (e.g. New York City, Washington DC, Philadelphia & Pittsburgh). In light of this new energy future, mitigating the impacts of energy development will be one of the major challenges in the coming decades.

WyGISC Speaker Series: Friday, October 11, 2013, Agriculture Building C (Old Ag Building) 316, 12:00pm – 1:00pm
