Carbon and Climate Change

posted on June 5, 2014

MSI Principal Investigator Martin Saar, an associate professor in the Department of Earth Sciences, spoke at Northwestern University's 4th Climate Change Symposium in May. The conference included experts from the U.S. and Canada, who discussed "The Future of Carbon." Professor Saar spoke about his research, which includes geologic CO2 sequestration and CO2-based geothermal energy extraction reservoirs. He uses MSI resources to study fluid flow, chemical reactions, and the coupling between the two in geologic porous media. The conference was written up in Medill Reports, a journal of Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism.
