Carbon Sequestration with Dr. Susan Hovorka
This work will largely take place on the American Shoreline
On this episode of the American Shoreline Podcast, Peter Ravella and Tyler Buckingham sit down with Dr. Susan Hovorka, Senior Research Scientist at the Bureau of Economic Geology, Jackson School of Geosciences, at The University of Texas at Austin. She has worked on diverse topics related to water quality protection, waste storage in bedded salt, and reservoir characterization. Her current research focuses on assessment of effectiveness of subsurface geologic sequestration of CO2 as a mechanism for reducing atmospheric greenhouse gas emissions. Hovorka is the principle investigator of the Gulf Coast Carbon Center (www.gulfcoastcarbon.org) an industry/academic partnership working on economically viable approaches to geologic sequestration of CO2.
