Modelling Carbon Sequestration Processes
In this talk we will present a series of models of the motion of CO2 following injection into the subsurface, including models of the migration of a buoyant plume as it experiences capillary trapping, drainage and dissolution in a heterogeneous rock. The models will focus on identifying leakage pathways and the fraction of the CO2 which may leak from the system. We will also present models of the dynamics of near surface leakage including possible lake eruptions driven by CO2 seeps.
