"This review will be successful if the current state of knowledge about shale gas drilling is clarified and the uncertainties identified so we have better understanding and insights to help manage the risks," said Mitchell Small, chairman of the NAS committee and Carnegie Mellon University professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
