Description

The combination of hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling that has occurred in the last decade has environmental implications, and learning more about those effects and what policies need to be made to control them is important, says U-M Assistant Professor Brian Ellis. Ellis, who is studying the potential water quality impacts associated with hydraulic fracturing activities, explains the process of hydraulic fracturing and why it motivates his research. The University of Michigan North Campus Sustainability Community will be brought together by meetings and other activities that highlight sustainability efforts of the U with the intention of both informing people, and enabling them to participate. It would also help to foster groups of people to implement some of these ideas. Eventually it could spread to all of the UM campus, to the city of Ann Arbor, and beyond. http://www.umncsi.org/ To see more lectures on demand, please visit our website: http://engin.umich.edu/mconnex
