Report on potential conflicts in regulations and technological capabilities of monitoring Carbon Capture and Storage 

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is increasingly being considered worldwide as a key greenhouse gas mitigation technology. As CCS expands, more countries are developing and refining their regulatory frameworks, all of which contain requirements for monitoring CO2 storage sites.

What tools for marine monitoring can be used today? What are the capabilities of these tools? What does national and international law require of marine monitoring?

The ACTOM project hosts this open webinar to present its most recent report comparing regulatory requirementions with technological capabilities in environmental monitoring. It consists of two parts: 1. CCS regulatory monitoring framework, and 2. Assessment of geophysical and marine monitoring technologies.
