Monitoring Sites - Otway

Introduction | Contacts | Purpose | Site Description | Measurements | DEM | Pictures


The purpose of the Otway flux station was:

  • to measure exchanges of carbon dioxide, water vapour and energy between the soil and the atmosphere using micrometeorological techniques.

  • to participate in the atmospheric monitoring strategy, which was developed by CO2CRC researchers in CSIRO, and is based on the effects of hypothetical storage leaks (point and diffuse) simulated by atmospheric dispersion models, over several distance scales at the Otway site.

The Otway Project included injection and geological storage of up to 100,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide together with the most extensive monitoring and verification program yet undertaken at a geosequestration site.
