Suitability of the Alberta Subsurface for Carbon Dioxide Sequestration in Geological Media

Sequestration of anthropogenic CO2 in geological media is a potential solution to the release into the atmosphere of CO2, a greenhouse gas. Basically, there are five ways of sequestering CO2 in geological media: 1) through enhanced oil recovery ... Show Abstract
