UT Austin energy researchers David Allen, Melinda Taylor, Bob Metcalfe and Michael Young participated in a recent study coordinated by the Academy of Medicine, Engineering and Science of Texas (TAMEST) on the environmental and community impacts of shale gas development in Texas. The TAMEST Shale Task Force, composed of a diverse set of experts from academia, environmental organizations, the oil and gas industry and state regulatory agencies, collected the best science available about shale oil and gas development, with a focus on six key areas: seismicity, land, air, water, transportation, and economic and social impacts. The report provides findings for each of the six study areas, and identifies and offers recommendations for future research opportunities. For more, read the TAMEST press release or the full report.
