David Riley, a PhD student at the University of Southampton, UK, will talk about the protocol he’s developed for comprehensive gas hydrate development in Alaska at a lunchtime talk Thursday, May 30, in ISER’s conference room. The protocol summarizes data from a range of sources and the positions of different stakeholder groups into one framework, allowing them to be more easily understood by any decision maker. Riley will discuss preliminary results that show there is no universal preference structure, even within stakeholder groups, and the and the implications of what he’s learned for future gas hydrate development in Alaska. Riley is currently in Alaska conducting research on his dissertation, “Assessing the viability of Arctic gas hydrate exploitation.”
