Noted scientist to speak Feb. 5 on Hydrofracking impacts on water resources

Nationally recognized geoscientist Susan Brantley will present the 31st annual Roscoe Ellis Jr. Lectureship in Soil Science at 4 p.m., Feb. 5 in 1018 Throckmorton Hall on the Kansas State University campus. The title of the lecture is “Water Resource Impacts During Unconventional Shale Gas Development with Hydrofracking: The Pennsylvania Experience.”

The lecture is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided before the lecture at 3:30 p.m. in the lobby of Throckmorton Hall.

Brantley is a distinguished professor of geosciences in the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences at Pennsylvania State University. She also is director of the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute. She was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 2012.

Her research has concentrated on understanding water chemistry at the surface of the earth and how water in the earth’s crust interacts with the rocks through which it flows. The research investigates the chemical, biological, and physical processes using field, laboratory, and theoretical modeling.

Brantley is a fellow of the American Geophysical Union, Geological Society of America, Geochemical Society, European Association of Geochemistry, and International Association for GeoChemistry. She is a past president of the Geochemical Society and has served on the U.S. Department of Energy Council on Earth Science since 2009.
