Lithologic, mineralogical, and petrophysical characteristics of the Eau Claire Formation; complexities of a carbon storage system seal

Concerns about potential climate change related to greenhouse gas emissions have spurred researchers across the world to assess the viability of geologic storage of CO2. In the Illinois Basin in the United States, the Cambrian Mount Simon Sandstone has been targeted as a reservoir for car... Full description
