Impact of Tight Horizontal Layers on Dissolution Trapping in Geological Carbon Storage


As a method to reduce atmospheric emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), this greenhouse gas can be separated at large point-sources, compressed and injected into geological formations such as saline aquifers. Several physical features of the fluids and the rock sequester the CO2 in the pores of the rock for geologic time-scales. One such feature is dissolution… (More)
