Title: Fossil Fuels: Natural Gas PDF
Url: http://esa21.kennesaw.edu/activities/naturalgas/naturalgas.pdf
Creator: Pratte, John
Publisher: Kennesaw State University
Description: This lesson provides an introduction to the use of natural gas as an energy source. Topics include its advantages (cleanliness, fewer carbon emissions), disadvantages (difficulty in transport and storage), sources, and usage. There is also a discussion of the creation and production of natural gas, the United States' production and reserves, and some potential new sources (coal bed methane, methane hydrates). The lesson includes an activity in which students investigate porosity and permeability in simulated sediments.
