28-31 August 2017
There has been a growing interest in the topic of this workshop as nations worldwide work towards reducing their greenhouse gas emissions. The workshop focus will be both on geophysical monitoring of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) projects (i.e. CO2 injection into saline formations) and Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) projects (i.e. CO2 injection and storage as part of EOR schemes). Since the 2009 workshop, there have been significant developments and improvement in monitoring approaches such as fibre-optic sensing (downhole and at surface), seismic methods (e.g. FWI, Broadband), gravity field monitoring, and satellite interferometry (InSAR).
This workshop will give researchers and site operators interested in geophysical monitoring technology a unique opportunity to find out more about the latest technological developments in the field. In addition to oral and poster presentations, there will be plenty of time dedicated to discussions and debate on the workshop topic.

In order to complement the workshop, an Icebreaker Reception will be organized, as well as a Workshop Dinner at a special location, where you will be able to get to know the other participants in an informal setting, and you will be able to relax from your busy schedule during the workshop.
A field excursion to study the geology and geophysics of the Trondheim Fjord area will be held on Friday, 1st of September 2017, immediately after the workshop.

Trondheim was founded by Viking King Olav Tryggvason in AD 997, and holds a special place in Norwegian culture and history. The city was the nation's first capital. The name Trondheim can be translated into 'the home of the strong and fertile ones'.
The distance between Trondheim's airport Værnes and the city is only 30 km, and there are airport shuttle busses to Trondheim scheduled every 30 minutes.
