Explorer Division Column DEG

This year, the AAPG Division of Environmental Geosciences (DEG) celebrates its 10-year anniversary -- the AAPG House of Delegates voted to establish DEG at the 1992 annual meeting held in Calgary. Prior to this action, all environmental issues for AAPG were the responsibilities of the Hydrology and Waste Management and Environmental Geology committees.

DL Abstract

President Biden has laid out a bold and ambitious goal of achieving net-zero carbon emissions in the United States by 2050.  The pathway to that target includes cutting total greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030 and eliminating them entirely from the nation’s electricity sector by 2035. The Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management will play an important role in the transition to net-zero carbon emissions by reducing the environmental impacts of fossil energy production and use – and helping decarbonize other hard-to abate sectors.

DL Abstract

Local sea-level changes are not simply a function of global ocean volumes but also the interactions between the solid Earth, the Earth’s gravitational field and the loading and unloading of ice sheets. Contrasting behaviors between Antarctica and Scotland highlight how important the geologic structure beneath the former ice sheets is in determining the interactions between ice sheets and relative sea levels.
