CO2 Push-Pull Single Fault Injection Simulations


ASCII text files containing grid-block name, X-Y-Z location, and multiple parameters from TOUGH2 simulation output of CO2 injection into an idealized single fault representing a dipping normal fault at the Desert Peak geothermal field (readable by GMS). The fault is composed of a damage zone, a fault gouge and a slip plane. The runs are described in detail in the following:
