March 18, 2015, Westerville, OH – The National Ground Water Association’s technical journal, Groundwater, has published a review paper focusing on carbon sequestration in saline aquifers to mitigate climate change.

Though not scheduled to appear until the
May-June 2015 issue, the 19-page paper can be accessed now via Wiley
Online Library
, the database housing complete content information for
the journal, the journal said in a news release.

Titled “Multiphase Modeling of Geologic
Carbon Sequestration in Saline Aquifers,” the paper is authored by Karl
W. Bandilla, Michael A. Celia, Jens T. Birkholzer, Abdullah Cihan, and
Evan C. Leister, all prominent experts in the field of carbon
sequestration and affiliated with Princeton University and the Lawrence
Berkeley National Laboratory.

“I consider this a seminal paper that offers a
treasure of information and references related to the modeling of
carbon dioxide entrapment in deep saline aquifers,” said Hendrik M.
Haitjema, PhD, editor-in-chief of Groundwater, in the release.

The paper offers a framework of the
conceptual complexity and different type of modeling approach used to
address geologic carbon sequestration issues.

Since 1963, Groundwater has
published a dynamic mix of papers on topics focused on groundwater such
as flow and well hydraulics, hydrogeochemistry and contaminant
hydrogeology, application of geophysics, management and policy, and the
history of hydrology.
