Monitoring CO2 Sequestration Leakage Via Laser-Based  Spectroscopy In The Field

Efforts to minimize the heat trapping effects of greenhouse gases on climate include purifying, capturing, and storing (sequestering) carbon dioxide in geologic formations. These formations include oil and gas reservoirs, saline aquifers, and coal seams. It is critical that the stored carbon dioxide does not leak back into the atmosphere too rapidly, and carbon sequestration sites are equipped with sensors to detect carbon dioxide leaks.
