Dear Colleagues,

Please consider submitting an abstract to our AGU Session S013: Induced
seismicity and caprock failure in carbon sequestration and geo-energy
applications
(https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm22/prelim.cgi/Session/159100). The
deadline is fast approaching,*Abstracts are due 3 August 2022, 23:59
EDT/03:59 +1 GMT*. We look forward to an exciting and engaging session
Online and in Chicago in December.

Thanks,

*S013: Induced seismicity and caprock failure in carbon sequestration
and geo-energy applications*

Pore pressure perturbations in geo-energy projects (e.g., carbon and
subsurface energy storage, enhanced geothermal systems, hydrocarbon
development) can trigger seismicity and/or caprock failure. Developing
tools to identify, understand, and mitigate these hazards is
increasingly urgent as carbon storage and subsurface energy development
emerge as critical technologies for mitigating climate change. For this
session, we invite studies focusing on the impact of induced or natural
pore pressure changes on subsurface energy and carbon storage projects.
Relevant topics and methods include but are not limited to: Monitoring
and characterizing pressure, temperature, seismicity, and aseismic
strain; geologic and geophysical reservoir characterization; measuring
stresses; surface deformation monitoring and modeling; coupled
hydro-geotechnical numerical modeling; risk assessments; fault geology
and rupture dynamics; friction lab tests and simulations; carbon,
geothermal, or hydrocarbon reservoir chemistry; and related case studies.

We welcome submissions from geophysics, geomechanics, geology,
hydrology, geochemistry, and related disciplines.
