The massive increase in development related to shale gas extraction across the globe has given rise to a wide variety of ecological impacts and changes in human-environment dynamics. This session seeks to increase the interaction and collaboration of researchers focusing on the geography of shale gas development including aspects such as landscape fragmentation, impacts on native populations, impacts on wildlife populations, wastewater disposal, and seismicity. The session organizers hope that the interaction of scholars on this topic will lead to future interdisciplinary efforts of cross-location comparisons that are currently lacking in the research.
