Abstract:
Storage of carbon dioxide in geological reservoirs has the potential to greatly reduce the amount of CO₂ being released into the atmosphere and slow global warming until more sustainable power sources can be implemented. However, it is vital before CO₂ is sequestered on a global scale, that tools are developed to both understand how CO₂ behaves in the geologic environment and/or monitor site leakage. Noble gases have been shown to be a powerful tracer of subsurface fluid systems. While there have been many studies addressing natural gas and oil systems, few have dealt directly with CO₂ sequestration.
