Hydrogeologic Model Based on Reduced Complexity

This data set provides the basic hydrogeologic model used for development of the TOUGH2 reservoir modeling results for the Kimberlina site. The hydrogeologic model is based on the static geologic model provided as a separate data set but has some simplifications regarding the geologic layers. Some geologic layers have been merged for the hydrogeologic model because the hydrogeologic properties were very similar. The data set contains several files. The word file explains the structure of the data files. The pdf contains a table with the hydrogeologic properties. The data set also includes 15 thickness files for 15 geological layers (including 3 Vedder sand layers and 3 Vedder shale layers), three elevations files (with reference elevation at ground surface/model top at 9000 m), and one fault trace file for seven faults. Most users may only need 2-3 faults close to the injection well (also see the figure). The arrangement of these layer thickness and elevations files can be see from the three layer files (for Tecplot). To develop a grid structure, start with the Vedder top elevation (REFVedderTop.dat) and add/subtract the thicknesses of layers above/below.
