Description

Environmental Issues Concerning Hydraulic Fracturing, Volume One captures the state-of-the-art research currently used to evaluate the potential impact of unconventional gas and oil gas extraction processes. Topics in this comprehensive guide on the topic include chapters on The Human Health Implications of Unconventional Oil and Gas Development, The use of Noble Gas Analysis and other Forensic Techniques in Characterizing Contamination Pathways Associated with Oil and Gas Development, Well Integrity, Contamination Mechanisms and Groundwater Impacts Associated with Unconventional Oil and Gas Development, and Advances in Fracturing and Well Construction: Improving Efficiency and Reducing Risks. This serial explores a wide breadth of emerging and state-of-the-art technologies used to study the potential environmental impact and various processes in the massive industrial process of shale exploration and resource extraction.

About Author

Kevin A. Schug is Professor and Shimadzu Distinguished Professor of Analytical Chemistry at The University of Texas at Arlington. He received his Bachelor's degree in chemistry from the College of William and Mary in 1998 and his Ph.D. in chemistry from Virginia Tech in 2002. Following two years as a post-doctoral researcher at the Department of Analytical Chemistry, University of Vienna, Austria, he joined the faculty at U.T.-Arlington in 2005. His research spans environmental analysis, bioanalytical chemistry, and the development and application of emerging analytical and remediation technologies. He is the Director of the Collaborative Laboratories for Environmental Analysis and Remediation (CLEAR; http://clear.uta.edu) at U.T.-Arlington. His group has contributed over 400 presentations to international, regional, and local conferences, industries, and academic institutions. He has over 120 publications to his group's credit. He has been awarded the 2009 Eli Lilly and Company Young Investigator in Analytical Chemistry Award, the 2009 Emerging Leader in Chromatography Award by LCGC Magazine, and the 2013 Young Investigator in Separation Science Award from the American Chemical Society's Division of Analytical Chemistry. In 2014, he was named as one of the top 40 under 40 analytical chemists in the world by the Analytical Scientist magazine. For his teaching, he was awarded the 2014 University of Texas System's Regent's Outstanding Teaching Award. He was named a Fellow of the U.T. System's Academy of Distinguished Teachers in 2016. Zacariah L. Hildenbrand received his bachelors of science and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Texas at El Paso, where he also played on the men's intercollegiate golf team. Dr. Hildenbrand continued his training as a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. He is the principal founder of Inform Environmental, LLC and is one of the co-founders of the Collaborative Laboratories for Environmental Analysis and Remediation at the University of Texas at Arlington. Together with his colleagues at UT-Arlington, Dr. Hildenbrand has coordinated environmental monitoring and remediation projects all across Texas, Louisiana, and Pennsylvania. This research has produced more than 20 peer-reviewed scientific journal articles and textbook chapters. He is determined to generate a deeper understanding of energy extraction and to develop solutions for environmental remediation and the recycling of anthropogenic wastes.
