Task 3 - Advancing Monitoring Technology

This task is investigating continuous seismic and EM monitoring technologies that would be advanced and used for CO2 plume monitoring at storage sites. The research performed as part of this project ranges from the conceptual/lab scale to pilot scale. Technologies being developed include fiber optic distributed acoustic sensing (DAS), semi-permanent seismic sources (rotary source), and electromagnetic (EM) sensing deployed in a cross-well arrangement.
