Module overview

This module aims to increase your research-led analytical skills in the handling of sub-surface data using the digital tools routinely employed within the carbon capture and storage (CCS) and energy industries. The course is almost entirely work-station driven with emphasis on integrated group projects and deskside coaching. You will find similar software tools used globally for a range of applications that require subsurface imaging and rock property characterisation, such as energy, environment or minerals. The course will emulate work flows commonly employed in industry and it represents a valuable opportunity to enhance your employability as society moves forward with the transition to green energy and carbon reduction. The methods used are also utilised in academic research for interpreting the sub-surface environment and its development across a range of geological and geophysical projects.
