Abstract

Abstract Impact assessments for CO 2-disposal techniques face significant environmental uncertainties. For the purposes of underground (aquifer or well) disposal, these involve both the transport of the gas to the dispersal site and the underground permeability regime, subsequent to disposal. For the purposes of oceanic disposal, uncertainties centre on the behaviour over time of ocean currents and other geophysical, plus biogeochemical controls, on ocean-atmosphere gas exchanges. Long-term considerations will include cost-effectiveness comparisons with energy demand management and alternative energy supply.
