Overview:  The occurrence and origin of methane in aquifer systems has become an emerging focus in areas of unconventional shale gas development in the Appalachian Basin.  Methane occurrence in an aquifer system may be a natural condition, the result of legacy conditions or due to recent activity.  Evaluation at the site-specific level to include time series gas and groundwater geochemistry data, and mechanism of migration are fundamental to define methane origin and source.  This course will provide an outline for sampling and laboratory variability, principals of methane migration, evaluation of time series geochemistry data and variability in the gas geochemistry of the N. Appalachian Basin.
