The Subsurface Flow and Transport (SFT) team develops and applies subsurface flow and transport modeling in porous and fractured media, from pore-scale lattice Boltzmann to regional watershed scales with applications to programs involving subsurface water, subsurface contamination of aquifers, CO2 capture storage and utilization, energy development in both hydrothermal and fossil energy, environmental cleanup and waste-storage.


Selected major projects include:

  • Characterization and remediation of the Nevada Underground Test Area, UGTA
  • Characterization and remediation of the LANL specific issues for Environmental Programs, EP
  • Increasing the efficiency of hydraulic fracturing and reducing the environmental impacts
  • Carbon sequestration risk analysis
  • Underground repository science for nuclear waste disposal for the Spent Fuel Waste Storage Campaign, SFWST
  • Next Generation Ecosystem Experiment Tropics and Arctic
  • Advancing Brittle Failure with Dynamic Graphs and Machine Learning (LDRD DR)
