Follow "CO2" in an adventure tour of its new home Underland to learn how the researchers at the Center for Nanoscale Control of Geologic CO2, an Energy Frontier Research Center, led by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, are using new investigative tools, combined with experiments and computational methods, to build a next generation understanding of molecular - to - pore scale processes in fluid-rock systems, and to demonstrate the ability to control critical aspects of flow and transport in porous rock media, in particular as applied to geologic sequestration of CO2.

As part of the DOE's Energy Frontier Research Centers Summit to be held in May, 2011, members were invited to create "short, engaging films that educate, inspire, and entertain audiences about the science, innovation and people in their centers." Twenty-six teams took up the challenge, including Berkeley Lab's Center for Nanoscale Control of Geologic CO2. Their "Carbon in Underland," a witty animation that explains carbon sequestration, was among the top five picks.
