The battle to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prevent the most dangerous consequences of climate change will be waged across multiple fronts, including efforts to increase energy efficiency; efforts to deploy nonfossil fuel sources, including renewable and nuclear energy; and investment in adaptation to reduce the impacts of the climate change that will occur regardless of the actions we take. But with more than 80% of the world’s energy coming from fossil fuel, winning the battle also… 

Carbon Capture and Storage in Geologic Formations

Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, the most important anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG), can be reduced by CO2 capture and storage (CCS). This strategy is applicable to many large stationary sources

Heterogeneity-assisted carbon dioxide storage in marine sediments

Carbon capture and storage.

GCS appears to be the most actionable and economic option for major greenhouse gas reduction in the next 10-30 years and when coupled with improvements in energy efficiency, renewable energy supplies, and nuclear power, CCS help dramatically reduce current and future emissions.

CO2 Sequestration Studies in Ocean and Deep Sea Sub-seabed Formations*

Since the beginning of the industrial age, CO2 concentrations have risen from 280 ppm to about 390 ppm as of 2010 and are forecasted to continue increasing at a rate of 2 ppm per year in the near

Cost Implications of Uncertainty in CO2 Storage Resource Estimates: A Review

Carbon capture from stationary sources and geologic storage of carbon dioxide (CO2) is an important option to include in strategies to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. However, the potential costs

Geological storage of CO2 within the oceanic crust by gravitational trapping

The rise of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) principally due to the burning of fossil fuels is a key driver of anthropogenic climate change. Mitigation strategies include improved efficiency, using

Long-term viability of carbon sequestration in deep-sea sediments

Under a deep-sea setting, CO2 sequestration in intact marine sediments is generally safe and permanent, and sensitivity analyses on storage efficiency under variable geological and operational conditions are found.



Permanent carbon dioxide storage in deep-sea sediments

It is shown that injecting CO2 into deep-sea sediments <3,000-m water depth and a few hundred meters of sediment provides permanent geologic storage even with large geomechanical perturbations.

The millennial atmospheric lifetime of anthropogenic CO2

The notion is pervasive in the climate science community and in the public at large that the climate impacts of fossil fuel CO2 release will only persist for a few centuries. This conclusion has no


Devonian gas shales underlie approximately two-thirds of Kentucky. In the shale, natural gas is adsorbed on clay and kerogen surfaces. This is analogous to methane storage in coal beds, where CO{sub

Stratigraphic Framework and Petroleum Potential of Northeastern Baltimore Canyon Trough, Mid-Atlantic Outer Continental Shelf

Geologic data from 29 wells in the Baltimore Canyon Trough were released to the public as of 1982, and provide sufficient information for establishing Upper Jurassic through Cenozoic
