A chemo-mechanical view on caprock failure—implications for carbon and hydrogen storage in subsurface reservoirs

Storage or disposal of fluids such as carbon dioxide, wastewater, or hydrogen in the subsurface can result in chemical disequilibrium between the resident brine and the formation. In this presentation I explore how chemical change can enhance or inhibit fracture growth, and how such processes can affect shale caprock integrity of storage reservoirs.

Title: Geophysical investigations of thawing permafrost

Abstract: Accumulating observational evidence shows widespread thawing and degradation of perennially-frozen ground known as permafrost. Thawing permafrost has profound effects on terrestrial ecosystems, hydrologic and landscape processes, and infrastructure. However, it is challenging to study and monitor permafrost mainly because it is purely defined by the subsurface thermal condition. Through a few local to regional-scale studies, I will show how integrative measurements using geophysical methods, such as Ground Penetrating Radar, space-borne Radar Interferometry, and Surface Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, offer quantitative understandings on surface and subsurface processes associated with thawing ice-rich permafrost.

11th Annual Jackson School of Geosciences Student Research Symposium

February, 12 2022

Time: 12:00 AM - 12:00 AM

Sponsored by ConocoPhillips


Each spring semester, Jackson School of Geosciences students present their research in a day-long poster competition. Throughout the day, judges comprised of faculty, research scientists, alumni and corporate representatives evaluate the posters and network with students. At the end of the day, prizes are awarded in the following categories: Undergraduate, Early-Career Graduate, Late-Career Masters, and Late-Career Ph.D. Another award is given to the best represented research group(s).
