The session provides a forum for the discussion of the latest advances in the field of underground storage of anthropogenic CO2. Contributions presenting results from national and international R&D projects, fundamental and concept studies, and pilot and large scale projects dealing with the following topics are invited:

(a) Storage formations, their capacity and geographic distribution:
* general site-selection criteria
* site characterisation requirements
* oil and gas fields
* saline aquifers
* coal seams
* other geological media
* matching of CO2 sources and geological storage sites

(b) Storage mechanisms and storage security:
* experimental and modelling studies of flow and transport, thermodynamic and kinetic processes and geochemical interactions
* processes and pathways for leakage of CO2 from geological storage sites
* possible local and regional environmental hazards
* global atmospheric CO2 trajectories for storage and leakage scenarios
* remediation of leaking storage projects
* risk assessment and management

Public information: The EGU provides rooms for short (3-5 min) poster summaries for this session. This event will take place on Thursday 6th May from 2 to 2.45 p.m. in one of the dedicated poster presentation rooms.
