SERC Research.

SERC Notes help to educate stakeholders and the general public on developments in subsurface energy, and promote the activities Ohio State faculty and staff are doing to fulfill our land grant mission.

SERC seeks to add to knowledge about the development of subsurface energy resources of all sorts, particularly in and around Ohio, as well as the environmental and public-health impacts of this development. To accomplish this objective, the center facilitates research, education and outreach, and exchanges of information carried out by multidisciplinary working groups consisting of OSU faculty members who have chosen to affiliate with SERC.

This page is the central clearinghouse for Ohio State-originated subsurface energy research and resources.

Materials posted to the SERC website reflect the views of the individual faculty member or members who authored the item, and may not represent the view of the SERC administration or The Ohio State University.

SERC is pursuing development of a field laboratory for testing the impact and developing best management practices of hydralic fracturing.
