Prof. Paolo Gasparini
- It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Prof Paolo Gasparini. His enthusiasm, genuine scientific curiosity, clarity of thought and permanent optimism left an indelible mark on all who was fortunate to meet him and enjoy his friendship. He will be sorely missed.

Kick - off meeting of SHEER project
The kick-off meeting of international SHEER (Shale gas Exploration and Exploitation induced Risks) project took place in Cracow on May 5-7. The consortium includes partners from Italy, United Kingdom, Poland, Germany, the Netherlands and USA.
The objective of SHEER is to develop best practices for assessing and mitigating the environmental footprint of shale gas exploration and exploitation. It will develop a probabilistic procedure for assessing short and long-term risks associated with groundwater contamination, air pollution and induced seismicity. An important part of SHEER will be devoted to monitor and understand how far enhanced permeability pattern, which may develop as an unwanted by-product of the fracking processes, will develop both in space and time. SHEER will develop methodologies and procedures to track and model fracture evolution around shale gas exploitation sites and a robust statistically based, multi-parameter methodology to assess environmental impacts and risks across the operational lifecycle of shale gas. The developed methodologies will be applied and tested on a comprehensive database consisting of seismicity, changes of the quality of ground-waters and air, ground deformations, and operational data collected from past case studies.
