26 Conclusions Near-filed physical and chemical process created by directly injected LCO 2 into the ocean waters could be reasonably simulated. To engineering application, injection of LCO 2 from fixed ports should be carefully arranged to limit the local injection rate associated with the selection of an incline seafloor. In case of large injection rate (100kg/s) from fixed port on a flat seafloor, injected LCO 2 could yield a large pH change and an unsteady waving double-plume. Alternatively, release of LCO 2 from a towered pipe at middle-depth with a relatively large size droplets is an expectable option to practically performance of CO 2 ocean sequestration, which could be adjusted with the limitation of biological impact. Understanding of the effect of dissolved CO 2 on oceanic bio-organisms appeared to be urgently necessary for assessing the oceanic environmental impacts. …. We still have more works to be done.
