Climate Change and Earth-Ocean-Atmosphere Systems
My PhD research focuses on the petrological and geochemical consequences of long-term exposure of CO2-charged waters on reservoir and cap-rocks. Using materials collected in July 2012 from a subsurface drilling program of a natural CO2 accumulation at Green River, Utah, I am quantifying the CO2 promoted fluid-mineral reactions.
