Identifying True Unknowns in Water Using High-Resolution Mass Spectrometry

20 June 2019

In this video, Dr. Susan Richardson, Professor of Chemistry at the University of South Carolina and ASMS President for 2020, shares her team’s new research around hydraulic fracturing and its impact on drinking water. She explains the basis of gas and oil extraction through fracturing, the impacts and challenges of these processes, and how mass spectrometry is used in their efforts to make drinking water as safe as possible. 

This interview was filmed as part of our coverage of ASMS 2019 in Atlanta, U.S.A. - see other video highlights here >>
