To kick-off AAPG’s centennial year, this issue introduces our new monthly editorial feature celebrating the next century of AAPG: “The Next 100 Years.” Our first installment, “Energy in the Next Century,” includes an interview with Scott Tinker, who discusses the energy sources that will fuel humanity toward 2117 and beyond.

It’s also our annual World Developments issue, which includes:

  • An overview of some of the major oil and gas discoveries of 2016.
  • A look at the massive discovery on Alaska’s North Slope.
  • Coverage of the USGS’s monumental assessment of the Wolfcamp shale.

We also have a story on the AAPG Foundation-supported humanitarian organization, Geologists Without Borders, a fascinating edition of Historical Highlights by AAPG Past President Paul Weimer covering a really deep subject, along with the rest of our usual news and features.
