Flowback and Produced WatersOpportunities and Challenges for Innovation: Proceedings of a Workshop (2017)
Produced water -- water from underground formations that is brought to the surface during oil and gas production -- is the greatest volume byproduct associated with oil and gas production. It is managed by some combination of underground injection, treatment and subsequent use, treatment and discharge, or evaporation, subject to compliance with state and federal regulations. Management of these waters is challenging not only for industry an... More >>
Summary of a Workshop on Mississippi River Water Quality Science and Interstate Collaboration (2014)

Research and Applications Needs in Flood Hydrology Science: A Summary of the October 15, 2008 Workshop (2009)
Flood damages have increased greatly over the past century, in part because of increased development in floodplain areas. Unfortunately, conventional methods used to understand and plan for flooding -- for example by considering flood risk when designing structures and setting insurance rates -- have become outdated. This report summarizes the discussions at a two-day workshop held by the National Research Council to foster dialogue among th... More >>
