Volume 9.1, Winter

Energy Council Issues Report—“The council’s initial reports will serve as a basis for moving Kansas toward energy self-sufficiency.”

Volume 9.2, Spring

Water Research Targets Trees—Anecdotal evidence suggests that trees growing along stream channels take large amounts of water from the alluvial aquifers, but little research has been conducted in Kansas to quantify the impact of water use by trees

Volume 9.3, Fall

Kansas Energy—As new sources of energy are being considered and developed, Kansans will have to balance environmental concerns about energy availability and revenue. It won't be easy, but it can't be avoided.


Volume 8.1, Winter

The Ogallala Aquifer—Despite the complex nature of both the problem and the potential solutions, some progress has been made towards development of a plan to conserve the aquifer's remaining water.

Volume 8.2, Spring

Coalbed MethaneIn parts of eastern Kansas, where oil and gas production is low and exploration all-but ended years ago, the search for coalbed methane has generated lots of activity.

Volume 8.3, Fall

Web-Based CO2 DataThe database provides the tools to analyze the amount of carbon dioxide available from a source, the geological feasibility of using underground reservoirs, the long-term effects on the reservoir, and the cost of compression and transportation from the CO2 source to the sequestration. site.


Volume 7.1,Winter

Energy Production in Kansas—This higher demand means that natural gas in storage is at a record low. The country could face spot shortages in the spring of 2001 and the following winter.

Volume 7.2, Spring

Survey Responds to Hutchinson Natural Gas Explosion—Today, some of the most heavily examined geology in Kansas lies beneath western Hutchinson.

Volume 7.3, Fall

Kansas Earthquakes—While most earthquakes that occur in Kansas are mild, a moderate to large earthquake in east-central Kansas is possible.
