GEOFUELS, ENERGY & THE EARTH

The Earth, its natural history, and its future are central to all of our energy systems. Interactions between moving tectonic plates, ocean circulation, and climate directly control the distribution of potential solar and biomass resources. Surface landforms govern the availability of wind and water for energy production. Over longer time periods, solar energy trapped by plants has created geologic deposits of oil, natural gas, coal, and other organic fuels. Uranium and other nuclear fuels have also been concentrated by natural geologic processes. A geoscience focus thus provides a wholistic view of the complex mosaic of past, present, and future energy resources.
