Andy Chadwick is a member of the Centre's Coordination Group and is the Research Area Champion for Monitoring R&D.
Andy is an Individual Merit Research Scientist at the British Geological Survey and an Honorary Professor in the School of Geoscience at Edinburgh University. He has an MA from Oxford and a DSc from Durham and his areas of expertise are: subsurface exploration, basin evolution, regional tectonics, seismic analysis, CO2 storage – characterization/capacity, monitoring and regulation. Andy has been involved with CO2 storage since 1998 participating in many European CO2 storage research projects and a number of UK government and industrially-funded ones. His main interests lie in storage site characterisation, monitoring and regulation. Current research directions include quantitative analysis of time-lapse seismic data to characterise CO2 plumes, and history-matched flow modelling to understand CO2 migration in reservoirs. He has advised a number of national and international regulatory bodies and is particularly interested in developing pragmatic integrated monitoring systems and strategies for industrial-scale storage sites.
