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, ...

Dynamics of a CO2-seawater interface in the deep ocean
(Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2005)
A trough filled with liquid CO2 located at 3940 m depth has been used as a model system for CO2 deposition on the seafloor. To study the intrinsic properties of the interface between CO2 and seawater a wave maker was used ...
Deep ocean experiments with fossil fuel carbon dioxide: creation and sensing of a controlled plume at 4 km depth
(Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2005-01)
The rapidly rising levels of atmospheric and oceanic CO2 from the burning of fossil fuels has lead to well-established international concerns over dangerous anthropogenic interference with climate. Disposal of captured ...
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 ...
