While there has been a large interest in studying the role of dissolution-driven free convection in the context of geological sequestration, the contribution of forced convection has been largely ignored. This manu- script considers CO2 sequestration in saline aquifers with natural background ow and uses theoretical arguments to compute the critical background veloc- ity needed to establish the forced convective regime. The theoretical arguments are supported by two dimensional high-resolution…
