This atlas will be public available as a web-based geographical information system (GIS), allowing visual overview of CO2 storage options and access to data connected to the storage site e.g. storage capacity.
Estimations of storage capacities will be improved by modelling of selected storage sites and test scenarios will help to understand complex processes that influences safety aspects as e.g. pressure up-build and sealing properties. Characterisation of the storage sites will lead to identification of the most prospective sites for safe storage of CO2 in the Nordic region.
