Original Closing Date: 02/26/2021

The intent of this Funding Opportunity Announcement is to facilitate the development of novel and/or improved tools and methods to detect and characterize faults during the site characterization phase of potential storage sites, assess the likelihood of induced seismicity due to large-scale CO2 injection, and identify, locate, and quantify unpredicted CO2/native fluid migration through the main caprock layer(s) overlying an injection reservoir. Amendment 1 was published to release the FOA.  Applications and/or instructions can be found with this announcement on FedConnect.

Amendment 2: Updated to extend the closing date to 3/5/21.
