GEOSX Simulates Carbon Dioxide Storage

Home News

GEOSX and its predecessor, GEOS, were developed from the ground up with the help of experts from across LLNL, combining a range of disciplines including engineering, seismology, hydrology, computational geoscience, and oil- and gas-industry expertise to build a tool that can take advantage of advanced computing platforms. A Research Highlight article in the latest issue of Science & Technology Review describes how GEOSX will improve the management and security of geological repositories and support planning for the widespread implementation of CO2 storage at an industrial scale by simulating how fluids flow and rocks break deep underground.
