S013. Geophysical Monitoring for Geologic Storage of CO2

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) continues to be studied as a means for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and mitigating climate change through sequestration of CO2 in geologic formations at depth. Ongoing projects evaluating geologic CO2 storage at scale pose an array of scientific questions which link academic and industrial research on a topic of global importance. Geophysical monitoring plays a crucial role in tracking CO2 injection and subsurface migration as well as ensuring safe long-term storage with low rates of leakage. Many time-lapse geophysical monitoring methods are applicable to CO2 monitoring including (4D) active seismic, microseismic, ambient seismic noise, electrical resistance tomography, InSAR, and potential field methods such as gravity. We solicit abstracts on experimental, computational, lab, and field-scale studies of geophysical monitoring for geologic CO2 storage, with a particular focus on data and results from field-scale demonstration projects.
