TitleShale Network – Statewide Groundwater (Six Analytes: CH4, Ca, Na, Cl, Fe, SO4) in Pennsylvania as of January 2019
Date2019
AbstractThis data set is a subset of the Shale Network database (https://doi.org/10.4211/his-data-shalenetwork) and has been discussed in the following publication “Wen, T., Woda, J., Marcon, V., Xianzeng, N., Li, Z., Brantley, S., 2019. Exploring how to use groundwater chemistry to identify migration of methane near shale gas wells in the Appalachian Basin. Environmental Science & Technology”. The Shale Network (http://www.shalenetwork.org/) is a project funded by the National Science Foundation to help scientists and citizens store data for water resources that may be affected by gas exploitation in shale in the U.S.A. Our primary focus currently is the northeastern U.S.A. We want to enable the generation of knowledge from water chemistry and flow data collected in areas of extraction of natural gas. The Shale Network is working with the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Sciences, Inc. (CUAHSI) to create this database (http://data.cuahsi.org/). Our goal is to find, organize, and upload data for water resources for online publication with attribution. The Shale Network is seeking organizations engaged in water quality monitoring or research to join our effort. Please contact us if you wish to learn more about becoming part of the Shale Network.
