Please join the Faculty of Science and the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences for a public lecture on the extensive history of hydraulic fracturing.
The talk will start off with a focus on natural examples that occur in the world around us, from the eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland to the emplacement of gold containing quartz veins, led by Dr. Steve Evans.
Having obtained an understanding of these natural processes Dr.Maurice Dusseault will then take us through the history of hydraulic fracturing as an industrial process with uses range from biosolid injection to the development of oil and gas in Canada.
