BIGDATA: Collaborative Research: IA: F: Fractured Subsurface Characterization Using High Performance Computing & Guided by Big Data (Funded by NSF)
Natural fractures act as major heterogeneity in the subsurface that control flow and transport of subsurface fluids and chemical species. Their importance cannot be underestimated, because their transmissivity may result in undesired migration during geologic sequestration of CO2, they strongly … Continue reading
