Dr. Abdullah A. Alshuhail

Assistant Professor, Geosciences Department

Educational Qualification

  • Ph.D., Geophysics, University of Calgary, USA, 2011. Dissertation title: CO2 Sequestration Site Characterization and Time-lapse Monitoring Using Reflection Seismic Methods
  • M.S., Geophysics, University of Calgary, USA, 2006. Dissertation title: Integration of 3-D Electrical Resistivity Imaging and Ground Penetrating Radar Surveys in Characterizing Near-Surface Fluvial Environment
  • B.S., Geophysics, KFUPM, KSA, 2001.
  • Visiting Scholar at the Geophysics Department, Stanford University, USA, 2012-2013.

Research Interests

  • Geophysical applications in CO2 sequestration. In particular, the applications of seismic methods in CO2 site characterization and time-lapse monitoring
  • Geophysical reservoir characterization
  • Qualitative and quantitative interpretation of seismic data
  • Near-surface Geophysics. In particular, applications of seismic, ground-penetrating radar (GPR) and electrical resistivity imaging (ERI) techniques in environmental and engineering/geotechnical studies
