A book edited by Ronald Surdam, the retired director of the University of Wyoming Carbon Management Institute (CMI), detailing a carbon dioxide storage project in southwest Wyoming has been released by a major national publisher of academic books.

Springer Publishing published the e-book as part of its Environmental Science and Engineering Book series. It is available here:http://www.springer.com/earth+sciences+and+geography/environmental+science+%26+engineering/book/978-1-4614-5787-9.

When then-Wyoming Gov. Dave Freudenthal asked that a site for a high-priority carbon storage site in Wyoming be identified and thoroughly characterized so that the state would be ready when future carbon dioxide storage is required, the Wyoming Carbon Underground Storage Project (WY-CUSP) launched.

For three and a half years, a small, diverse and accomplished team of geologists, geophysicists and support staff from CMI -- one of the centers of excellence in UW’s School of Energy Resources -- took the project from minimal regional data to a complete characterization of the Rock Springs Uplift as a certified commercial-level geological carbon dioxide storage site.

The trek is described in 14 chapters, culminating in the presentation of an integrated strategy for the detailed and accurate characterization of potential carbon dioxide storage reservoir and storage sites in Wyoming and elsewhere.
