14 Fracking for energy and its role for groundwater and soils

Chair: Johannes Barth; Schwartz, Frank; Elsner, Martin

Freitag, 15:00-16:00, H18, NW II

Fracking offers new opportunities to increase exploitation of subsurface hydrocarbons. First applications or their considerations have caused intense public and scientific debates about potential adverse effects on local and regional groundwater and soil systems. This session is open for presentation of case studies, evaluation scenarios and models as well as the presentation of interest groups to evaluate consequences of fracking for groundwater and soil systems.
