The Shale Network 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. Our primary focus currently is the Marcellus shale and other shales in 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. Our goal is to find, organize, and upload data for water resources for online publication and your data can help.
