Abstract


The ShaleNetwork is a group of individuals working together to publish water quality and quantity data online for regions where shale gas is being exploited in the U.S.A. (www.shalenetwork.org). The ShaleNetwork has a primary focus in the northeastern U.S.A but also publishes data from other areas. The ShaleNetwork database includes data generated by academic researchers, government agencies, industry representatives, nonprofit entities, watershed groups, and others; data from all entities are welcome, as long as data quality is maintained. The ShaleNetwork acts as an “honest broker” that collates datasets, publishes them in the CUAHSI HIS, and synthesizes the data into useful knowledge. To cite the database, cite the doi as doi:10.4211/his-data-shalenetwork. Papers interpreting the data are noted below. As these papers are published by members of the Shale Network team, the data subsets are published here, along with occasional snapshots of the entire dataset: https://goo.gl/5GFjzQ. The Steering Committee of the ShaleNetwork derive from Penn State, University of Pittsburgh, and Syracuse University, with help from the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Sciences, Inc. This group was funded originally by the National Science Foundation in October 2011 to put together the database and to run annual workshops (www.shalenetwork.org). Funding derived from NSF 11-40159 and 16-39150 to S. Brantley.
