Jimmy Moneron

Postdoctoral Research Associate in Carbon Capture and Storage
I am working as part of the Agile Initiative, a NERC-funded project, which is a multidisciplinary network focused on CO2 storage in the ‘Endurance site’ located offshore UK. My current research especially focuses on analyzing faults above salt-cored anticlines and assessing risks related to potential C02 leakage after injection. I also work on the Permian’s Zechstein salt, where I analyse maps of different stratigraphic levels within that salt layer.
My main skills and expertise are:
  • Marine geology and applied geophysics
  • Sedimentary basin research
  • Sedimentology and petrology
  • Geomorphology
  • Evaporites and salt tectonics
  • Seismic Interpretation & Seismotectonics
  • Glaciology
  • Structural Geology
  • Sequence Stratigraphy
  • Environmental Science
