Pereira & Gamboa (2023): In situ carbon storage potential in a buried volcano
Ricardo Pereira, Davide Gamboa IN: Geology, https://doi.org/10.1130/G50965.1
In situ mineral carbonation in porous and permeable mafic and ultramafic volcanic rocks is proposed to be a promising process that can contribute toward safe and permanent CO2 sequestration. Here,the authors investigated a partially buried Late Cretaceous composite volcano located offshore the central West Iberian margin as a proxy for potential in situ mineral carbonation in volcanic edifices on continental margins worldwide. Based on seismic data, geochemistry, and petrophysical properties, deterministic scenarios for permanent carbon storage were estimated.
