1 Transporting CO2 From Source to Sink using GIS Mission 2013, Wednesday, September 30, 2009 Daniel Sheehan

2 Outline What is a GIS –Data Types –Symbolizing data Useful data for Carbon Sequestration –Power plants –Potential Sinks Processing –Network Analysis –Cost Path Analysis

3 What is a GIS (Geographic Information System)? GIS is a tool for managing data about where features are (geographic coordinate data) and what the features are like (attribute data). A GIS provides the ability to query, manipulate, and analyze these data.

4 Vector Data Points Line Polygons All are scale dependent

5 Point data: Location of power plants

6 CO2 from power plants

7 Polygon Data China, Population 1990

8 Attributes

9 Metadata describing attributes

10 Combing Maps: Power plants in Massachusetts and Population

11 Boston area power plants

12 MIT power plant in Google Earth

13 Data for Carbon Sequestration: Sinks and Sources Deep Saline formations are blue, power plants are yellow dots

14 Transportation problem Routing piplelines from Carbon Sources to Carbon sinks CO2 sources near Cambridge Nearest deep saline formation

15 Routing from power plants to a single pipeline

16 Single network vs multiple pipelines

17 Herzog’s cost path model 70 kilometer pipeline

18 Development of Terrascope model in GIS workshops You will need to create your own cost surface (required for cost path model) –river crossings –zoning/land use restrictions –construction costs

19 Workshop content Use the data presented here to determine the least cost path for routing a pipeline from Boston area CO2 sources to the nearest deep saline formation Use Arcgis 9.3 software Visualize your least cost path in Google Earth

20 GIS Workshops Scheduled for 7:30-9PM, limit of 22 people per session Additional sessions can be scheduled –October 7 –October 14 –October 15 –Must sign up with Seth Burgess –Determine construction costs before lab

21 Geologic Maps For teams 4 and 5, you will need to know what minerals are where. Geologic data is not always available in digital form. Maps will be helpful for you. In Barton, maps are searchable. See, for example: Bedrock Geologic Map of Massachusettshttp://library.mit.edu/item/

22 Google Maps API

23 Where to get more infomation GIS Lab, Rotch Library, Building 7 –6 PCs with Arcgis and Google Earth Pro installed –staffed 12:30PM – 4:00PM Monday through Thursday and by appointment – or , Windows Cluster in Building 37 –23 high end PCs with Arcgis installed

24 Web sites Both sites sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy's National Energy Technology Laboratory

25 MIT Geodata Reposity –http://web.mit.edu/geowebhttp://web.mit.edu/geoweb Example Google Maps API –http://web.mit.edu/dsheehan/www/terrascope 2012.htmlhttp://web.mit.edu/dsheehan/www/terrascope 2012.html Download Google Earth –http://earth.google.com/download-earth.htmlhttp://earth.google.com/download-earth.html Sign up for Arcgis for your machine –https://web.mit.edu/ist/products/vsls/forms/esri.html
