Isotopic characterisation of methane and ethane within groundwater aquifers: assessing sources, flow pathways and the impact of shale gas exploration in the Vale of Pickering, UK.
Hydraulic fracturing (‘fracking’) is highly controversial with public concerns over environmental impacts, not least the risks to groundwater. Key among the concerns are the risks… Read More »Isotopic characterisation of methane and ethane within groundwater aquifers: assessing sources, flow pathways and the impact of shale gas exploration in the Vale of Pickering, UK.
