Aims and Scope: Natural Resources Research

Natural Resources Research (NRR) is one of three journals sponsored by the International Association for Mathematical Geology (IAMG) and is co-sponsored by the Energy Mineral Division of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG/EMD). NRR publishes quantitative geoscientific studies reporting on the search for and development of natural resources, including their associated environmental, economical, and risk-related aspects. Reports regarding petroleum or energy-mineral resources are of interest, as are investigations on the exploitation of any metallic or non-metallic resource. Example studies include the use of geoscientific data or analyses to

  • assess measurement or sampling methods
  • compare exploitation strategies
  • evaluate policies regarding site development, use, and remediation
  • identify important factors for economic and/or technical success
  • test statistical or deterministic models

for the exploration, assessment, and/or development of resources containing

  • coal
  • clean coal, decarbonized energy, and hydrogen
  • conventional oil and gas under any recovery process
  • copper
  • uranium
  • geothermal
  • gypsum
  • precious stones
  • unconventional oil or gas, including gas hydrates, heavy oil, coalbed methane, and oil shale
  • vegetation
  • water
  • carbon dioxide production or sequestration

Case studies are particularly welcome. Papers submitted must be original and not under consideration for publication elsewhere; all papers are peer-reviewed.
