"Impacts of Oil and Gas Wastewater Disposal on Western PA Streams;" A lecture by Dr. Nathaniel Warner

Friday, September 25, at 12:20 p.m. in 107 Forestry Resources Building

Nathaniel Warner is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Penn State. His research focuses on using boron, strontium, and radium isotope geochemistry to better understand the processes controlling sources of salts in produced waters, shallow groundwater, and surface water. Identifying the source(s) of salinity is vital for assessing the development strategy for both water and hydrocarbon resources under changing climate and/or energy resource development scenarios.
