To quantify the risk and impact of CO2 seepage to the marine ecosystem, the Quantifying and Monitoring Potential Ecosystem Impacts of Geological Carbon Storage project is now undergoing in a bay in Scotland. In advance of the field experiment of this project, we conducted the numerical simulation of CO2 seepage. From this numerical study, we predicted how CO2 behave in the bay and how the condition of the sea changes.
- Multi-scale ocean model
- Sub-seafloor carbon storage
- CO2 seepage
- Two-phase flow
