New paper by Dr Jen Roberts on CO2 subsurface movement

We’re delighted to share news from Jen Roberts on the publication of her new research paper, funded in part by the UKCCSRC International Collaboration Fund.

The new paper by Jen Roberts (Chancellor’s Fellow in Energy. Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Strathclyde) and Linda Stalker (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) Energy division, and Science Director of the National Geosequestration Laboratory) seeks to evaluate current learning and asses knowledge gaps in the key questions surrounding how CO2 moves in the subsurface.

Although the report has been published just this month, the initial work was completed in 2017, supported by the UKCCSRC International Collaboration Fund and the University of Strathclyde’s Sir David Anderson Bequest Fund.

Adding to the global effort to understand how CO2 moves in the subsurface, this research examined a number of CO2 release field sites, and the outcomes of it have already had considerable impact in informing the experimental design and focus of the first In-Situ Lab experiment ($6.5m AUD), developed by CSIRO in south west Western Australia.

Find more details on this research in the blog, and view the published paper here (free until end of November 2020).

Well done Jen!
