The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Energy From Peatlands: Options and Impacts.

CURA Peat Policy Project.

This book is a major report on Minnesota's peat resources in the early 1980s and how they might be developed. It includes a discussion of direct peat mining, using peatlands as farmland for growing energy crops, and preserving peatlands. It analyzes the economies of these various approaches; considers the impact development would have on local economies, communities, and the environment; explains the legal and regulatory options available to Minnesota; and presents the recommendations of the peat panel that prepared the report.
