Subject: Announcement for Workshop on Stray or Fugitive Gases

Date: September 10, 2009 2:28:51 PM EDT

The following describes an upcoming workshop of potential interest to DCHAS members: 

Stray Gas Workshop, November 4-6, 2009 Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania:  This workshop will focus on the scientific basis for assessment of, and various types of geochemical analyses for, stray or fugitive gases. Stray gases can originate from a variety of sources and accumulate in natural and man-made spaces where dispersion and ventilation are inadequate. Gas accumulation can lead to problems where the fugitive nature of gases is a major safety concern. Tools and strategies for investigating stray gases, along with case studies, will be presented by scientists and specialists whose work has focused on the origins, migration, and accumulation of gases. The workshop is co-sponsored by the U.S. Geological Survey and Pittsburgh Geological Society, with support from the Office of Surface Mining and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection. 

The workshop planners are seeking additional presenters and the call for abstracts is open until September 15, 2009.  Interested in attending?  The deadline for registration is September 30, 2009.  Additional information on the workshop, including an on-line registration form, can be found at
