The 2013 Outstanding Student Poster (OSP) Award is awarded to Lynsey J. Spaeth for the poster/PICO entitled:

Seal assessment and estimated storage capacities of a targeted CO2 reservoir based on new displacement pressures in SW Wyoming, U.S.A. (Spaeth, L.; Campbell-Stone, E.; Lynds, R.; Frost, C.; McLaughlin, J. F.)

Lynsey Spaeth is a MSc student at the University of Wyoming, United States. Her current research focus is the characterization of a confining unit (seal) for a proposed CO2 injection site in Wyoming, a relatively understudied topic in carbon sequestration research. The poster at EGU General Assembly 2013 presented characteristics of the potential confining unit, capillary pressure data from the confining and storage units, and calculated CO2 column heights. The poster also discussed the sensitivity of the calculations with respect to specific variables and the need for additional experimental work to better constrain the amount of CO2 which can be injected at this location.
