Carbon Storage - Monitoring, Verification, Accounting, and Assessment


Combining Space Geodesy, Seismology, and Geochemistry for Monitoring, Verification and Accounting of CO2 in Sequestration Sites


Performer: University of Miami

Project No: FE0001580


Accomplishments


  • The GPS system has been deployed at the Hastings Field site and is currently acquiring data for processing and inclusion in algorithm development and the modeling effort. This data will be used to infer changes in the subsurface, including fluid movement.
  • The cavity ring downhole spectrometer has been deployed to the Hastings Field site and is currently collecting geochemical data from the shallow subsurface. This geochemical data allows for the measurement and quantification of CO2 concentration and isotopic variation.
  • InSAR imagery datasets are continuing to be acquired and will be used to further algorithm and model development.
  • The development and refinement of the system-level numerical model integrating the data being collected by the InSAR, GPS, and geochemical monitoring components is still ongoing.
