EMD Supporting Committees
The AAPG-EMD connections have evolved out of a long history of oil and gas development, which have further expanded into the need to develop the science of geology to support the exploration and development for a variety of new energy resources, whether they be carbon-based, nuclear-based, or consist of energy available in the environment, both now and in the foreseeable future.
EMD focuses on the unconventional hydrocarbons (including coalbed methane, gas hydrates, shale gas & liquids, oil shale, and oil sands, tight gas sands, and on the so-called alternative energy resources of coal, uranium (and nuclear minerals), geothermal energy, more recently monitoring of the renewable energy resources - such as wind, solar, tidal, etc. Additional concerns of the Division are the on energy economics and technology.
Application for EMD membership is open to any AAPG MEMBER, but is not automatic with Association membership. YOU MUST BE A MEMBER OF AAPG TO JOIN EMD!
