Short summary
People release great quantities of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere – enough to cause serious problems for human, animal, and plant life. Can we keep the carbon dioxide in storage underground? To make sure the storage sites do not leak, we explore a system of monitoring using lasers. We find that variable wind actually makes it easier to identify leaks against the large background concentration and other point sources because they do not shift with the wind the way the leak does.
