About this book

Despite the large research effort in both public and commercial companies, no textbook has yet been written on this subject. This book aims to provide an overview to the topic of Carbon Capture and Storage (CSS), while at the same time focusing on the dominant processes and the mathematical and numerical methods that need to be employed in order to analyze the relevant systems. The book clearly states the carbon problem and the role of CCS and carbon storage. Thereafter, it provides an introduction to single phase and multi-phase flow in porous media, including some of the most common mathematical analysis and an overview of numerical methods for the equations. A considerable part of the book discusses the appropriate scales of modeling, and how to formulate consistent governing equations at these scales. The book also illustrates real world data sets and how the ideas in the book can be exploited through combinations of analytical and numerical approaches.

Michael Celia is chair of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Princeton University. He is also the Theodora Shelton Pitney Professor of Environmental Studies. Professor Celia served for 10 years as editor of the journal Advances in Water Resources. He is a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), and was the 2008 Darcy Lecturer for the National Ground Water Association. As a contributing author for the IPCC Working Group III Special Report on Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage, Professor Celia shares, with many colleagues, the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.

Jan M. Nordbotten is an associate professor of mathematics at the University of Bergen, and visiting professor at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Princeton University. In 2004, at age 22, he defended his PhD thesis as the youngest ever in Norway. Since then, he has authored and co-authored more than 30 journal publications and 20 other scientific works. Dr. Nordbotten most recently received the inaugural Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics Geosciences (SIAM-GS) Junior Scientist Award in June 2009.
