Abstract
Coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical (THM) effects related to geologic carbon storage should be understood and quantified in order to convince the public that carbon dioxide (CO2) injection is safe. This Thesis aims to improve such understanding by developing methods to: evaluate the CO2 plume geometry and fluid pressure evolution; define a field test to characterize the maximum sustainable injection pressure and the hydromechanical (HM) properties of the aquifer and the caprock; and propose an energ...
