Basin scale simulation of oil shale & oil sands development

The ultimate goal of this research area is to develop a predictive tool based on Los Alamos National Laboratory's (LANL) dynamic, integrated assessment model CLEARuff for assessing the basin- or regional-scale environmental and economic impacts of unconventional fuel development. The research team is working closely with Dr. Donatella Pasqualini at LANL, the primary developer of CLEARuff. to develop the modules needed to perform a validation and uncertainty quantification (V/UQ) analysis of the simulation tool.
