Ocean abyssal carbon experiments at 0.7 and 4 km depth
Observations from small-scale (20 to 90 litres) CO2 experiments conducted off the coast of California at 684 m depth and at 3942 m depth are discussed. In both experiments, when the seawater velocity was sufficiently strong, ...
Turbulent diffusion and transport from a CO2 lake in the deep ocean
(American Geophysical Union, 2005-09-21)
If liquid CO2 is stored as a dense ‘‘lake’’ on the deep ocean floor, it is expected to dissolve in seawater. Ocean currents and turbulence can increase the net rate of CO2 release by several orders of magnitude compared ...
Parameterization of drag and dissolution of rising CO2 drops in seawater
(American Geophysical Union, 2005-05-24)
In this work the dynamics and dissolution of a hydratecovered CO2 drop were studied, using a numeric model and data from one of very few CO2 experiments performed in the real ocean. A theory including the standard drag ...
