- ... Zoback and Gorelick [(2012) Proc Natl Acad Sci USA 109(26):10164–10168] have claimed that geologic carbon storage in deep saline formations is very likely to trigger large induced seismicity, which may damage the caprock and ruin the objective of keeping CO ₂ stored deep underground. We argue that felt induced earthquakes due to geologic CO ₂ storage are unlikely because ( i ) sedimentary formatio ...
