The Center for Subsurface Modeling (CSM) investigates high-performance parallel processing as a tool to model the behavior of fluids in permeable geologic formations such as petroleum and natural gas reservoirs, groundwater aquifers and aquitards, and in shallow bodies of water such as bays and estuaries. The Center is part of the Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences (ICES). CSM comprises a close-knit team of faculty and research scientists with expertise in applied mathematics, engineering, and computer, physical, chemical and geological sciences. This interdisciplinary approach to simulation permits a more effective integration of advanced mathematical and numerical techniques with engineering applications.

CSM offers researchers the ability to collaborate on projects that address the growing use of computers to simulate physical events and the use of these simulations to study physical phenomena and to perform engineering analysis and design.


Affiliates Meeting [UPCOMING]

The Center for Subsurface Modeling with host its 23nd Annual Industrial Affiliates Meeting November. 18th and 19th 2014.


CSM Director Named SPE Honorary Member [NEW]

Professor Mary Wheeler was named as an Honorary Member of the Society of Petroleum Engineering (SPE) this September. The designation is reserved for less than .1% of its membership, and represents the society’s highest honor. Dr. Wheeler will be accepting the award at the upcoming ATCE meeting in Amsterdam.

Congratulations to Dr. Wheeler!
