Science of Carbon Storage in Deep Saline Formations: Process Coupling across Time and Spatial


Pania Newell & Anastasia G. Ilgen


Science of Carbon Storage in Deep Saline Formations: Process Coupling across Time and Spatial Scales summarizes state-of-the-art research, emphasizing how the coupling of physical and chemical processes as subsurface systems re-equilibrate during and after the injection of CO2. In addition, it addresses, in an easy-to-follow way, the lack of knowledge in understanding the coupled processes related to fluid flow, geomechanics and geochemistry over time and spatial scales. The book uniquely highlights process coupling and process interplay across time and spatial scales that are relevant to geological carbon storage.

  • Includes the underlying scientific research, as well as the risks associated with geological carbon storage
  • Covers the topic of geological carbon storage from various disciplines, addressing the multi-scale and multi-physics aspects of geological carbon storage
  • Organized by discipline for ease of navigation


About the Editors

Pania Newell is an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Utah. She has been working in the field of computational mechanics with emphasize on understanding coupled multi-physics, multi-scale problems in porous media as well as fracture initiation and propagation in these complex systems.

Prior to joining the University of Utah, she was at Sandia National Laboratories, where she worked on computational modelling of subsurface carbon storage and computational homogenization techniques to link material behaviours at multiple length scales. At Sandia, she developed a computational framework for investigating caprock integrity within subsurface systems. In addition, she worked on constitutive modelling of various materials including geomaterials.

Anastasia G. Ilgen is a staff scientist in the Geochemistry Department at Sandia National Laboratories. She is an experimental geochemist, specializing in molecular-level processes at mineral-water interfaces, with emphasis on ion adsorption-desorption rate and mechanisms, chemical controls on mineral growth and dissolution, and surface-mediated redox reactions. At Sandia National Laboratories she has built research programs relevant to the geological carbon storage, chemical-mechanical effects in geosystems, and fundamental research on clay mineral-water interfacial chemistry.
