GHGT cover October 2014 IBDP featured in special edition of
Greenhouse Gases: Science and Technology published by John Wiley & Sons, Ltd

Greenhouse Gases: Science and Technology is a new online-only scientific journal dedicated to the management of greenhouse gases. The journal focuses on methods for carbon capture and storage (CCS), as well as provides insight into strategies to mitigate emissions of other greenhouse gases. A special issue of the publication is dedicated to the IBDP and features papers on reservoir characterization, communication, risk management, compression systems, characterization, and modeling. Special Issue: Illinois Basin – Decatur Project, October 2014, Volume 4, Issue 5, Pages i–ii, 569–684, Issue edited by: Sallie Greenberg. Information available at:
