Baseline Submarine Monitoring Network

The Baseline Submarine Monitoring Network – will allow for validation of monitoring and verification technologies in the marine environment. This is an important consideration when developing offshore storage projects when taking account of environmental sensitivities. Marine monitoring research assets will be operated by the CSIRO based on the world-leading marine monitoring expertise of their Oceans and Atmosphere Flagship.

 The Baseline Monitoring Network will provide certainty to regulators and the community that CCS is safe to the environment in which it operates – specifically marine environments where many storage sites are viable.
