For this project, the PIs will observe how dissolved methane concentrations (i.e. natural gas) change through time in domestic wells in the southern tier of New York – a region that overlies the Marcellus Shale. Natural methane occurrence is fairly common in the area. Better characterization of natural methane occurrence will result in more accurate assessment of potential methane contamination due to hydraulic fracturing in the Marcellus region.
