Sponsored by the International Association for Mathematical Geosciences (IAMG), and co-sponsored by the Energy Mineral Division of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG/EMD)
Covers a wide span of topics related to natural resources of all kinds
Includes assessment strategies for exploration, evaluation, risk
Natural Resources Research publishes peer-reviewed, quantitative geoscientific studies on the search for and development of natural resources, including associated environmental, economical, and risk-related aspects. Typical articles use geoscientific data or analyses to assess, test, or compare resource-related activities. NRR reports cover a wide variety of resources, including coal, water, vegetation, and heavy oil. Case studies are particularly welcome.
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
clean coal, decarbonized energy, and hydrogen
conventional oil and gas under any recovery process
unconventional oil or gas, including gas hydrates, heavy oil, coalbed methane, and oil shale
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.
