Carbon Research into Underground Storage (CRIUS)

Dataset description

Carbon Research into Underground Storage (CRIUS) is concerned with 'predicting the fate of CO2 in geological reservoirs for modelling geological carbon storage'. CRIUS is a consortium funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). CRIUS involves scientists from the Universities of Cambridge, Manchester and Leeds and the British Geological Survey. Our research focuses on understanding the reactions which take place between carbon dioxide, reservoir fluids and minerals where CO2, separated from power station fuels or exhaust products, is stored in underground geological reservoirs. We aim to use observations from natural and experimental systems to further the understanding of complex mineral-fluid reactions, which will aid in predicting the long-term fate of geologically reservoired CO2. The ultimate objective is to inform site assessment, risk and monitoring for geological carbon storage.
