The architecture and fluid flow properties of shallow fault systems: implications for environmental monitoring

Opportunity type: 
Studentship
Application Deadline: 
Details: 

The PhD will explore fault zone heterogeneities and the effect on fluid flow (particularly groundwater, CO2, or reservoir brines) in the shallow crust through the study of unique data from two contrasting faults in Australia, and relevant analogues. The research will improve modeling of fluid flow in and around fault zones, with a range of beneficial applications. This is an exciting opportunity to engage in international research to reduce risks of geological engineering such as Carbon Capture and Storage and...
