Virtual Issue on Carbon Sequestration

Ensuring safe long-term storage of CO2

The storage of carbon dioxide raises many questions around capacity, injectivity, storage integrity, monitoring, and environmental impacts. Characterizing and modelling suitable reservoirs, predicting the behaviour of CO2 underground and estimating the probability of faults are all key to ensuring the long-term viability of CO2 storage.

This virtual issue of GreenhouseGases: Science and Technology brings together a number of articles that aim to answer some of these questions and address these issues.
