Subsurface: An Exascale Subsurface Simulator of Coupled Flow, Transport, Reactions and Mechanics
Subsurface: An Exascale Subsurface Simulator of Coupled Flow, Transport, Reactions and Mechanics is led by Carl Steefel of the Earth and Environmental Sciences Area, with David Trebotich of the Computational Research Division serving as deputy. The project supports application code development for a sound understanding of and predictive capability for the interacting hydrological, chemical, thermal, and mechanical processes in subsurface formations for improved energy extraction and safely storing CO2 and other wastes. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the National Energy Technology Laboratory also participate in the project. Chombo-Crunch, the underlying application code, is one of the codes targeted by the NESAP program and incorporates AMR.
