Fieldwork in Arizona

As Part of my PhD I am investigating how, how fast and how much CO2 may leak from a CO2 reservoir to the surface through faults. Faults are areas within the earth’s crust where layers of rock have been displaced to each other and often form pathways for fluids (water, oil, gas, CO2). I have…
