AIM-DEEP Webinar: Intelligent Carbon Storage

Monday, October 18, 2021

12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

About the Event:

Carbon capture and storage (sequestration), CCS, is the process in which carbon dioxide (CO2) is captured before entering atmosphere and stored in underground geological formation for centuries or millennia. Underground carbon storage and monitoring is a challenging process and can be optimized using geophysical techniques including seismic, electromagnetic, micro seismic, microgravity, electrical resistivity tomography and the integration of these methodologies. Data-driven methodologies have been recently introduced to the industry and been of great attention among researchers. In this seminar, we will go through the individual and integrated techniques for carbon monitoring and summarize the advantages and disadvantages of each methodology.
