  • Controlled CO2 release experiments and studies of natural CO2 seeps have been undertaken at sites across the globe for CCS applications. The scientific motivation, experimental design, baseline assessment and CO2 detection and monitoring equipment deployed vary significantly between these study sites, addressing questions including impacts on benthic communities, testing of novel monitoring technologies, quantifying seep formation/style and determining CO2 flux rates. A review and synthesis of these sites studied for CCS will provide valuable information to: i. Enable the design of effective monitoring and survey strategies ii. Identify realistic site-specific environmental and ecosystem impact scenarios iii. Rationalise regulatory definitions with what is scientifically likely or achievable iv. Guide novel future scientific studies at natural or artificial release sites. Two global databases were constructed in Spring 2013, informed by a wide literature review and, where appropriate, contact with the research project leader. i. Artificial CO2 release sites ii. Natural CO2 seeps studied for CCS purposes The location and select information from each of these datasets are intended to be displayed as separate GoogleMap files which can be embedded in the QICS or UKCCSRC web server. These databases are not expected to be complete. Information should be added as more publications or become available or more case studies emerge or are set up. To facilitate this process, a contact email should be included beneath the map to allow viewers to recommend new or overlooked study sites for the dataset. Grant number: UKCCSRC-C1-31. These data are currently restricted.

  • This data set contains example input and output files from density functional theory calculations of rare earth systems, using the Vienna Ab initio Simulation Package (VASP), The data set it split into two parts. The first data set contains the input and output files of molecular dynamics simulations of MCl3 in solution, where (M = Nd, Gd and Er) at ambient conditions, which was modelled at 341 K using the optB88 exchange-correlation functional. The calculations were run in order to investigate speciation in rare earth chloride solutions, including trends across the row, using a light (Nd), medium (Gd) and heavy (Er) rare earth. These particular calculations were used to validate classical interatomic potentials that were used to perform more complex simulation on larger systems and longer timescales. Only the first 2 ps of the trajectories are deposited here, since the complete trajectories are large. The second data set contains example input and output files for lattice dynamics calculations of the thermodynamics properties (heat capacity and entropy) of Nd-monazite and Nd-xenotime at ambient conditions up to 1200 K. In addition, it includes scripts for processing and plots of final results. These are useful for thermodynamical modelling of rare earth systems. Only the input and output files for Nd are deposited here, since the files are large and input files for Gd and Er are identical, save for the change in element.

  • No data was collected during this flight (VIP Demonstration).

  • Airborne atmospheric measurements from core and non-core instrument suites data on board the FAAM BAE-146 aircraft during flight 3 for International Transport of Ozone and Precursors (ITOP) project.

  • Airborne atmospheric measurements from core and non-core instrument suites data on board the FAAM BAE-146 aircraft collected for Autumn and Winter Experiments (AUTEX / WINTEX) project.

  • This dataset contains summary data (global monthly mean) of the volcanic stratospheric aerosol optical depth, effective radiative forcing, instantaneous radiative forcing and rapid adjustments from 82 model simulations of volcanic eruptions that have different sulfur dioxide emissions, eruption latitudes and emission altitudes. Two ensembles were conducted for eruptions starting in January and July. Each simulation was run for 38 months post eruption in a year 2000 timeslice condition. Unified Model- United Kingdom Chemistry and Aerosols Model simulations were conducted at a global resolution of 1.875° x 1.25°. One file is included for each eruption. Simulation IDs as specified by the Unified Model User Interface are included in each file name. Eruption details are included as global attributes. This data were collected as part of the NERC Reconciling Volcanic Forcing and Climate Records throughout the Last Millennium (Vol-Clim) project.

  • This dataset contains Chemical Ablation Model version 3 (CABMOD3) simulations of metal ablation from meteoroids. This experiment was undertaken as part of Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) First study of the global Nickel and Aluminium Layers in the upper atmosphere (NIALL) project (NE/P001815/1). This project aimed to make the first ever study of Ni and Al chemistry in the mesosphere/lower thermosphere.

  • Two categories of data are presented: 1) Experimental data of catalyst performance under conditions for a Blast Furnace Gas (BFG) to methanol to process, comprising the monitored gas phase species evolution in a single channel micro reactor. 2) Process simulation and techno-economic analysis of the BFG-to-methanol process, comprising Aspen Plus V10 anotated process flowsheet, process model summary, stream results, reactor performances and cost analysis calculation.

  • The dataset contains results of field measurements (temperature, pH, conductivity, redox potential, oxygen content) of groundwater and samples collection details as well as the results of laboratory analysis of the set of dissolved and gaseous parameters performed within the environmental monitoring campaign on 3 Polish shale gas sites where exploration activities including hydraulic fracturing were conducted in 2010-2016 period.

  • In March 2010, the Scottish CCS (Carbon Capture & Storage) Consortium began an extensive Front End, Engineering and Design (FEED) study to assess what would be required from an engineering, commercial and regulatory, perspective in order to progress the CCS demonstration project at Longannet Power station in Scotland through to construction. The study yielded invaluable knowledge and the resulting material are available for download here. This section of the report contains the cost estimate for the End-to-End CCS chain for the purposes of providing potential developers of CCS projects with indicative cost information regarding capital expenditure, operating costs and decommissioning/ abandonment costs. One of the key objectives of the FEED phase of the UKCCS Demonstration Competition was to increase the cost certainty for the overall project. During development of the Outline Solution, costs were estimated to an accuracy of -30% to +50%. Through the design and project development across the various Consortium workstreams (as outlined in the previous sections of this report), it has been possible to refine this accuracy and increase the cost certainty of the indicative core capital costs to approximately -12%/+15% accuracy. The appropriate summary section from the Feed Close Out Report can be downloaded as a PDF (CCS project costs.pdf). The main text of the FEED Close Out Report, together with the supporting appendix for this section can be downloaded as PDF files.
