Second U.S. National Research Council Workshop on Shale Gas Development Set for August 15-16, 2013

This upcoming Washington, DC, event focuses on governance and follows a workshop held in May on the risks of unconventional shale gas development. Attendance can be in person or via the web.

A U.S. National Academies project designed by an NRC steering committee, this is the second event in a two-meeting series examining social and decision-making issues involved in risk characterization and governance for shale gas development.
