Wu Hao & Graydon Konzen Win GSA Grants
We're super excited to learn that Graydon "Grady" Konzen and Wu Hao are recipients of Student Research Grants from the Geological Society of America.
Grady received $1,250 for his proposal titled Hydrogeology of long-range pressure migration during oilfield wastewater disposal. His research combines regional-scale numerical simulation with geostatistical analyses that will develop a robust framework to understand how interacting pressure transients can increase fluid pressure over extraordinary length scales.
Wu Hao won $500 for her proposal titled Quantifying CO2 mineral trapping effects to fracture permeability alteration in a basalt fracture network. Wu Hao's research utilizes reactive transport simulation to learn how much permeability alteration is required for basalt fracture networks to self-seal during geologic CO2 sequestration operations.
Congratulations to both Wu Hao & Grady! It's great to see students' hard work paying off with #realmoney!
