Abstract

As the world faces the consequences of rising anthropogenic carbon dioxide entering the atmosphere and ultimately the ocean, a growing arsenal of adaptation and mitigation strategies are being investigated. Carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) is regarded as a useful way of removing CO2 at source, transporting it and storing it at depth underground, in saline aquifers or depleted hydrocarbon reservoirs beneath the seabed. But will there be any impacts in the marine environment above these sites? Anja Reitz describes how one EC- funded project hopes to find the answers.
