Save the date – April 4th at 4:30pm. Tamara Gagnolet, GIS Analyst and Conservation Data Manager for the Pennsylvania chapter of the Nature Conservancy, will be at Bucknell on April 4th, 2011 to discuss her work in using GIS to analyze potential impacts of Marcellus Shale gas drilling in Pennsylvania. The Nature Conservancy recently released part 1 of its ‘Pennsylvania Energy Impacts Report’ – focusing on environmental impacts of Marcellus Shale gas-drilling and wind energy. Ms. Gagnolet’s presentation will focus on how GIS and spatial analysis were used to project how much energy might be developed in PA during the next 20 years, where that development is more or less likely to occur and what types of strategies might need to be employed to mitigate potential habitat impacts.
Presentation details: April 4th, 2011 at 4:30pm in the Bertrand Library Traditional Reading Room. Refreshments will be served.
