Presentation by Herbert E Huppert, Professor at the Institute of Theoretical Geophysics,  University of Cambridge

Current global anthropogenic emissions of carbon dioxide are approximately 32 Gigatonnes annually.  The influence of this green-house gas on climate has raised concern.  A means of reducing environmental damage is to store carbon dioxide somewhere until well past the end of the fossil fuel era.  Storage by injection of liquid, or supercritical, carbon dioxide into porous reservoir rocks, such as depleted oil and gas fields and regional saline aquifers, is being considered.  The presentation will discuss the rate and form of propagation to be expected and quantify some of the risks involved. 

Herbert Huppert completed his Ph.D. at the University of California, San Diego, and came to the University of Cambridge as an ICI Post-doctoral Fellow in 1968. He has published widely using fluid-mechanical principles in applications to the Earth sciences: in meteorology, oceanography and geology.

Prof. Huppert holds numerous awards and fellowships including the Arthur L. Day Prize Lectureship for contributions to the Earth sciences and the Murchison Medal of the Geological Society of London. In 2011 he gave the Bakerian Prize Lecture of The Royal Society entitled Carbon storage: caught between a rock and climate change’.
