DGG / SEG Workshop

On initiative of the DGG presidents Prof. Dr. Yaramanci and Prof. Dr. Räkers, an international DGG/SEG-Workshop on CCS is organised under the heading “Geophysical Aspects of CO2-Storage – Challenges and Strategies”.

The workshop will take place on Friday, March 19, 2010 in Bochum/Germany, and runs in continuation to the annual assembly of the German Geophysical Society (DGG), where also CO2-related sessions are scheduled. This one-day workshop aims at giving an overview of state-of-the-art research related to CO2 storage world-wide, focussing here on geophysical methods. The scientific sessions will deal with site characterisation, rock physics and monitoring. In addition, an introduction session covers opportunities and fundamental strategies, while the closing session tackles also operational achievements and public outreach.

The workshop is organised by a strong and experienced Scientific and Technical Committee consisting of members from leading companies and institutes in the workshop topics. The workshop shall address scientists, energy providers, the industrial sector, politicians and other in CCS interested groups. We invite you to be part of this workshop.
