“How Are Geochemical Reactions in Aquifers Connected to Climate Change Mitigation?”
Chen Zhu, professor of earth and atmospheric sciences and the Haydn Murray Chair in Applied Clay Mineralogy at Indiana University, will present “How Are Geochemical Reactions in Aquifers Connected to Climate Change Mitigation?” as part of the 2021 Darcy Lecture Series in Groundwater Science presented by the National Ground Water Association. This talk is co-sponsored by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the Integrated GroundWater Modeling Center (IGWMC) based in the High Meadows Environmental Institute (HMEI).
Zhu will provide an overview of geological carbon sequestration efforts and of the research advances in reaction kinetics and geochemical modeling necessary to predict the safety of carbon dioxide storage.
Reed Maxwell, director of the IGWMC and professor of civil and environmental engineering and the High Meadows Environmental Institute, will lead the discussion.
