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!
