Brown Bag Lunch N° 6: Carbon Capture and Storage

On Thursday 23 February 2022, EMB is hosting a Brown Bag Lunch on the topic of Carbon Capture and Storage. The event starts off with lunch offered by EMB, followed by a presentation from Prof. Douglas Connelly from the National Oceanographic Centre, UK, and ending with an interactive discussion. Registration is open until 15 February 2023 via the link below.

For this Brown Bag lunch, Professor Doug Connelly is joining us to give talk on 'Assuring the integrity of offshore Carbon Capture and Storage'.

Professor Doug Connelly is the Associate Director for Research at the National Oceanography Centre in the UK. He is a biogeochemist by training and has worked in marine science for over 30 years, in applied observations and the development of marine sensors and technology. Doug has been involved in many European Commission funded projects and has coordinated one Innovative Training Network (ITN) and two research and innovation projects, involving more than 20 academic and commercial entities. The last large EU project he coordinated was the STEMM-CCS (Strategies for Environmental Monitoring of Marine Carbon Capture and Storage) looking at using existing and newly developed approaches for monitoring offshore carbon capture and storage reservoirs.
