Goethe Zentrum Hyderabad is concluding its Environmental month with the movie Dirt and popular talk by Dr. A M Dayal about Shale Gas in India.

DIRT, directed and produced by Bill Benenson and Gene Rosow to be screened on Saturday 26th April, tells the story of Earth’s most valuable and underappreciated source of fertility–from its miraculous beginning to its crippling degradation. Narrated by Jamie Lee Curtis, the film brings to life the environmental, economic, social and political impact that the soil has. It shares the stories of experts from all over the world who study and are able to harness the beauty and power of a respectful and mutually beneficial relationship with soil.

Dr. A M DAYAL will deliver his talk on Tuesday, 29 April.

Shale gas is natural gas produced from carbonaceous shale formations that typically function as both the reservoir and source rocks for the natural gas. In terms of its chemical makeup, shale gas is typically a dry gas composed primarily of methane, but some formations do produce wet gas. Dr Anurodh Mohan Dayal, Ph.D. in Geology established the first K-Ar geochronology lab in India for the age determination of various rock types.

Both events will be held at Goethe-Zentrum Hyderabad.
