Co2 field laboratory for monitoring and safety assessment

the co2fieldlab project comprises a shallow injection of co2 and the monitoring of its migration up to the surface and the dispersion at the surface. This type of controlled release experiment is unique at this stage and will fulfil four objectives: (i) determine the sensitivity of monitoring systems to detect shallow co2 migration and surface leakage, (ii) upscale these results to assess monitoring systems and requirements that will ensure safe co2 storage, (ii) test and calibrate migration models in well controlled conditions, (iv) inform the public about the safety of co2 storage by showing the performance of monitoring systems.
