The geological storage of carbon dioxide (CO2) in deep saline aquifers forms an integral part of many climate mitigation strategies. At depth CO2 is buoyant and mobile and may therefore leak into surface waters or the atmosphere. This talk will explore two mechanisms which act to trap CO2 permanently on short to intermediate timescales; the dissolution and convection of CO2 into the ambient brine, and the action of capillary forces which may halt the advance of sequestered CO2 . Insight will be drawn from laboratory experiments and numerical simulations with application to current industrial-scale CO2 sequestration projects.
