Geological Carbon Storage Subsurface Seals and Caprock Integrity

Seals and caprocks are an essential component of subsurface hydrogeological systems, guiding the movement and entrapment of hydrocarbon and other fluids.Geological Carbon Storage: Subsurface Seals and Caprock Integrityoffers a survey of the wealth of recent scientific work on caprock integrity with a focus on the geological controls of permanent and safe carbon dioxide storage, and the commercial deployment of geological carbon storage.

Volume highlights include:

  • Low-permeability rock characterization from the pore scale to the core scale
  • Flow and transport properties of low-permeability rocks
  • Fundamentals of fracture generation, self-healing, and permeability
  • Coupled geochemical, transport and geomechanical processes in caprock
  • Analysis of caprock behavior from natural analogues
  • Geochemical and geophysical monitoring techniques of caprock failure and integrity
  • Potential environmental impacts of carbon dioxide migration on groundwater resources
  • Carbon dioxide leakage mitigation and remediation techniques

Geological Carbon Storage: Subsurface Seals and Caprock Integrityis an invaluable resource for geoscientists from academic and research institutions with interests in energy and environment-related problems, as well as professionals in the field.
