Water Resources Data Science Group
In cooperation with the USGS and California SWRCB we are trying to understand the effects of wastewater injection on usable water in California. Funded undergraduate and graduate research positions are available.
Our group uses archived oil and gas well log records to help understand the 1.) the distribution and pace of wastewater injection across the state, 2.) the distribution of saline water in the subsurface, and 3.) hydrogeological framework of select oil and gas fields.
