Reservoir characterization and lithostratigraphic division of the Mount Simon Sandstone (Cambrian); implications for estimations of geologic sequestration storage capacity

The Mount Simon Sandstone (Cambrian) has significant potential for use as a reservoir for geologic carbon sequestration in the Midwest region, but lithologic variations within the unit remain poorly understood. Petrophysical heterogeneities controlled by the changes in lithologic and diagenetic char... Full description
