Surface and airborne gas monitoring programs are becoming an important part of environmental protection in areas favorable for subsurface storage of carbon dioxide. Understanding structural architecture and its effects on the flux of fluids, specifically CO2 and CH4, in the shallow subsurface and atmosphere is helping with designing and implementing next-generation monitoring technologies, including unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

Explorer Historical Highlight

 

In a recent EXPLORER, Marlan Downey lamented that he had not fully appreciated the idea that source rocks could serve as reservoir rocks for oil and natural gas. He was not alone.
