  • Thermal structure and source rock maturity of the North Peruvian forearc system: Insights from a subduction-sedimentation integrated petroleum system modeling
    Marine and Petroleum Geology, 2020
    Co-Authors: Adriana Lemgruber-traby, Nicolas Espurt, Christine Souque, Pierre Henry, Ysabel Calderon, Patrice Baby, Stéphane Brusset
    Abstract:

    Basin modeling is commonly used for the hydrocarbon potential evaluation of underexplored areas, taking into account the full basin history to assess its thermicity and fluid distributions. In the case of forearc basins, however, the influence of the subduction on the internal thermal structure is difficult to predict. The existing subduction thermal models usually focus on the present day lithosphere and do not consider the sediment infill history, while industrial modeling tools handle the thermal evolution of sedimentary basins but not the subduction process. In this paper, we propose a solution model in which the cooling engendered by the subduction is represented by the Advective Term of the heat conservation energy equation throughout the sedimentation. This study focuses on the Talara-Tumbes-Lancones petroleum province, part of the North Peruvian forearc system. Despite the long Term exploration of the Talara Basin, the origin of its massive oil fields still remains questioned. The new subductionsedimentation integrated petroleum system modeling presented here, calibrated by numerous structural and thermometric data, allows to better constrain the thermal structure and source rock maturity history of this forearc system. We show that the exposure of the sedimentary basin to the subducting cold lithosphere, the sedimentation rate and erosion are important factors impacting the maturity of the source rocks. Consequently, even in the same subduction setting, each depocenter of the North Peruvian forearc system presents a different thermal history and maturity timing, and each basin presents an independent petroleum system.

  • One-dimensional simulation of solute transfer in saturated-unsaturated porous media using the discontinuous finite elements method.
    Journal of contaminant hydrology, 2001
    Co-Authors: E B Diaw, F Lehmann, P Ackerer
    Abstract:

    A one-dimensional transport model for simulating water flow and solute transport in homogeneous-heterogeneous, saturated-unsaturated porous media is presented. The model is composed of a combination of accurate numerical algorithms for solving the nonlinear Richard’s and advection-dispersion equations (ADE). The mixed form of Richard’s equation is solved using a standard finite element method (FEM) with primary variable switching. The transport equation is solved using operator splitting, with the discontinuous finite element method (DFE) for discretization of the Advective Term. A slope limiting procedure for DFE avoids numerical instabilities but creates very limited numerical dispersion for high Peclet numbers. An implicit finite differences scheme (FD) is used for the dispersive Term. The unsaturated flow and transport model (Wamos-T) is applied to a variety of rigorous problems including transient flow, heterogeneous medium and abrupt variations of velocity in magnitude and direction due to time-varying boundary conditions. It produces accurate and mass-conservative solutions for a very large range of grid Peclet numbers. The Wamos-T model is a good and robust alternative for the simulation of mass transport in unsaturated domain.

  • Change of the Global Ocean Vertical Heat Transport over 1993–2010
    Journal of Climate, 2017
    Co-Authors: Xinfeng Liang, Christopher G. Piecuch, Rui M. Ponte, Gael Forget, Carl Wunsch, Patrick Heimbach
    Abstract:

    AbstractA dynamically and data-consistent ocean state estimate during 1993–2010 is analyzed for bidecadal changes in the mechanisms of heat exchange between the upper and lower oceans. Many patterns of change are consistent with prior studies. However, at various levels above 1800 m the global integral of the change in ocean vertical heat flux involves the summation of positive and negative regional contributions and is not statistically significant. The nonsignificance of change in the global ocean vertical heat transport from an ocean state estimate that provides global coverage and regular sampling, spatially and temporally, raises the question of whether an adequate observational database exists to assess changes in the upper ocean heat content over the past few decades. Also, whereas the Advective Term largely deTermines the spatial pattern of the change in ocean vertical heat flux, its global integral is not significantly different from zero. In contrast, the diffusive Term, although regionally weak…

  • The engine behind (wall) turbulence: Perspectives on scale interactions
    Journal of Fluid Mechanics, 2017
    Co-Authors: B. J. Mckeon
    Abstract:

    Known structures and self-sustaining mechanisms of wall turbulence are reviewed and explored in the context of the scale interactions implied by the nonlinear Advective Term in the Navier–Stokes equations. The viewpoint is shaped by the systems approach provided by the resolvent framework for wall turbulence proposed by McKeon & Sharma ( J. Fluid Mech. , vol. 658, 2010, pp. 336–382), in which the nonlinearity is interpreted as providing the forcing to the linear Navier–Stokes operator (the resolvent). Elements of the structure of wall turbulence that can be uncovered as the treatment of the nonlinearity ranges from data-informed approximation to analysis of exact solutions of the Navier–Stokes equations (so-called exact coherent states) are discussed. The article concludes with an outline of the feasibility of extending this kind of approach to high-Reynolds-number wall turbulence in canonical flows and beyond.
