Center for Frontiers of Subsurface Energy Security


The Center for Frontiers of Subsurface Energy Security (CFSES) is pursuing scientific understanding of multiscale, multiphysics processes to ensure safe and economically feasible storage of carbon dioxide and other byproducts of energy production without harming the environment.


CFSES Wins 4th Place in Basic Energy Sciences' “Energy Frontier

One of the greatest challenges in communicating science to a broader audience is in boiling down a scientifically complex topic to something that is understandable yet still accurate to the science. The Department of Energy’s Office of Basic Energy Sciences (BES) sponsored the “Energy Frontier Research Center Science Using Only a Thousand and One Words Challenge” as part of their 2013 EFRC Principal Investigators’ Meeting. Below is the award-winning CFSES entry which illustrates the impact on society of our mission using only the 1000 most commonly used words in the English language, with the addition of one word important to each of the EFRCs and the mission of DOE: energy. CFSES received 4th place for this innovative poster.
