Spring Semester 2019

Geofluids (MSc level)

X.‑Z. Kong, A. Ebigbo, A. Moreira Mulin Leal, 651-4240-00
GEG-instructors involved: X.‑Z. Kong, A. Ebigbo, A. Moreira Mulin Leal
Short description
This course presents advanced topics of single and multiphase fluid flow, heat transfer, reactive transport, and geochemical reactions in the subsurface. Emphasis is on the understanding of the underlying governing equations of each physical and chemical process, and its relevance to applications, e.g., groundwater management, geothermal energy, CO2 storage, waste disposal, and oil/gas production.
