Platforms for Integrated Assessment Models and UQ
NRAP is adapting and building system platforms for performing integrated assessment modeling of CO2 storage sites. Platforms are specific to the type of impact under consideration. Details on the availability of each of these system-model platforms can be found on the respective websites.
CO2-PENS (Predicting Engineered Natural Systems) is a system model platform developed by Los Alamos National Laboratory. CO2-PENS has been adapted by NRAP to conduct integrated assessment modeling for potential impacts due to release of CO2 to the atmosphere or to the leakage of CO2 and/or brine into groundwater. http://ees.lanl.gov/ees16/co2pens.shtml
PSUADE (Problem Solving environment for Uncertainty Analysis and Design Exploration) is a software toolkit to facilitate the use of output from detailed process models to quantify uncertainty; it was developed by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. https://computation.llnl.gov/casc/uncertainty_quantification/
