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:

Peatland Energy Options: System Analysis.

Aiken, Roger and Douglas S. Wilson.

A technical supplement to the CURA Peat Policy Project's major report, Energy from Peatlands: Options and Impacts, this 1982 work presents calculations that compare the amount of energy that could be extracted from Minnesota peatlands using three different mining techniques as well as a renewable approach. Cattails are used as the renewable crop to be grown on the peatlands, harvested, and converted to usable energy.
