Geoscience Australia testing CO2 monitoring techniques

The facility is jointly run by the Cooperative Research Centre for Greenhouse Gas Technologies (CO2CRC) and partner agency Geoscience Australia and is one of only a few similar facilities around the world. The work at the Ginninderra facility complements the monitoring work being undertaken by the CO2CRC and Geoscience Australia at the Otway Project in Victoria.

The measurement of known releases of greenhouse gases in the field using a controlled release facility is the most effective approach for assessing the effectiveness of monitoring techniques, said Geoscience Australia. Project Leader Dr Andrew Feitz said one of the key challenges is to develop technology for detection of small-scale leak features over a wide area.
