This document describes the methodologies used to produce the geologic resource estimates for carbon dioxide (CO2) storage in the 2008 Carbon Sequestration Atlas of the United States and Canada (Atlas II). The methodologies described in this document were designed to integrate results of data compiled by the seven RCSPs for three types of geologic formations: saline formations, unmineable coal seams, and oil and gas reservoirs.
