Microorganisms can strongly influence the chemical and physical properties of the subsurface. Changes in microbial activity caused by geological CO(2) storage, therefore, have the potential to influence the capacity, injectivity, and integrity of CO(2) storage reservoirs and ultimately the environmental impact of CO(2) injection. This analysis uses free… (More)
