Figure 2 – P-wave propagation velocity in CO2 for a range of pressures and temperatures. Numbered triangle 1 defines the
velocity value used to model seismic reflectivity at a CO2 sequestration depth of 6,000 feet. As references, the velocity in water is
approximately 4,800 feet/second, and the velocity in air is 1,100 feet/second.
