Geological Storage as a Carbon Mitigation Option
Michael Celia, chair of the department of civil and environmental engineering and an investigator with the Carbon Mitigation Initiative at Princeton, discusses geological storage as an option for reducing the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas that contributes to the problem of climate change.
This lecture is part of a series on "engineering the future." Other topics include cryptography, sustainable energy, transportation systems, water stewardship, greenhouse gases, and the future of the internet.
The series was developed by the Princeton Adult School in conjunction with School of Engineering Dean H. Vincent Poor and Princeton University's Office of Community and Regional Affairs. These talks constituted the Princeton Adult School's Anne B. Shepherd Lecture Series for the spring of 2010.
