DOE to Attend the American Rock Mechanics/Geomechanics Symposium (DOE/EERE/GTO)

Lauren Boyd, Enhanced Geothermal Systems Program Lead and Zach Frone, Science and Technology Policy Fellow with the Enhanced Geothermal Systems Team are co-chairing a track, at next years’ American Rock Mechanics/Geomechanics Symposium related to geomechanics in geothermal exploration and production. This marks the 50th U.S. Rock Mechanics/Geomechanics Symposium scheduled on June 26-29, 2016 in Houston, Texas.

The conference will be accepting abstract submissions on the following:
  •  Geomechanics in: Geothermal, Petroleum engineering, Civil engineering, and Mining engineering,
  •  Geology and geophysics,
  •  Fracture mechanics,
  •  Induced/triggered seismicity,
