Understanding high wintertime ozone pollution events in an oil- and natural gas-producing region of the western US

Atmos Chem Phys

Ahmadov, R., McKeen, S., Trainer, M., Banta, R., Brewer, A., Brown, S., Edwards, P. M., de Gouw, J. A., Frost, G. J., Gilman, J., Helmig, D., Johnson, B., Karion, A., Koss, A., Langford, A., Lerner, B., Olson, J., Oltmans, S., Peischl, J., Pétron, G., Pic

This study compares high-resolution meteorological simulations for atmospheric pollutants and ozone formation over the Uinta Basin using two different emission scenarios: EPA bottom up emission estimates and recent top-down measurements. Model results provide further evidence that federal methane emission estimates from oil and gas development are too low.

What is known about the health effects of gas extraction by induced hydraulic fracturing of gas-bearing rock—ie, fracking? A workshop held on Nov 15, 2013, at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and attended by scientists, public health professionals, and decision makers addressed this question.
