Jon Olson will lead a short course on modeling the growth on natural and artificial fracture systems and their effects on fluid flow in connection with the Fracture Research & Application Consortium meeting, tentatively scheduled for November 2009 in Austin.
Special Issue of Journal of Structural Geology
The Journal of Structural Geology has invited us to organize a special issue on the topic of chemical and mechanical interactions, with a focus on structures formed during diagenesis. Papers for the special issue will be due this summer. Contact Steve Laubach for more information.
Graduate student Alex Urquhart received a scholarship from the GDL Foundation for his research on the structural diagenesis of CO2 and fault seal. Alex’s project is jointly sponsored by FRAC and GCCC.
