This course covers the fundamental concepts involved in developing geologic models used in successful carbon sequestration. It provides an overview of reservoir characterization, discusses fluid dynamics, and discusses risks and challenges both theoretical and those encountered in current cases.
Upon successful completion of this course, the learner will be able to define carbon capture and sequestration, explain how and when it is used, discuss geological characteristics of suitable formations, describe fluid dynamics, and discuss current cases of where and how geological models have been developed in conjunction with CCS.
This course is designed for self-study, with resources and activities for each topic.
