Description

Muon transport simulations have been performed in Geant4 to test the sensitivity of muon tomography for monitoring carbon storage. An accurate geological model of the overburden above the Boulby mine has been used and CO2 injection is simulated by changing the bulk density of a volume of rock. The change in muon flux through a 1000 m^2 detector at a depth of 776 m after CO2 injection is predicted to be statistically significant after ~ 5% of a year.
