Project Title & Description
Monitoring CO2 Biogeochemical interactions in DW
The objective of this research is to conduct lab and in situ research to understand how carbon dioxide from geologic sequestration may interact with microbial communities and heavy metals in an aquifer and if these interactions will adversely affect underground sources of drinking water. Additionally, it will research ways to detect leaking carbon dioxide through changes in microbial communities or trace metal concentrations.
