CERTAIN Research.

CERTAIN seeks to educate stakeholders and the general public on developments in energy resource development, and promote the activities Ohio State faculty and staff are doing to fulfill our land grant mission.

CERTAIN seeks to add to knowledge about the development of 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 CERTAIN.

CERTAIN has provided opportunities for Seed Grant funding. To date, four calls have resulted in funded proposals from across the university, including the School of Earth Sciences, OSU Extension, the College of Engineering, Fisher College of Business, and the Knowlton School of Architecture. Announcements for future seed grant funding opportunities will be posted as News items.

SERC Notes

In 2014, The Subsurface Energy Resource Center, the precursor to CERTAIN,  published seven SERC Notes, brief papers intended to 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 landgrant mission. All seven of these publications are available here.

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