Although direct injection of CO2 into the deep ocean is believed feasible for the mitigation of global warming, its impact on the marine environment is of concern. To dilute the injected CO2 to the point of little biological influence, using a ship that cruises and injects CO 2, has been considered. To investigate the fate of CO2 near the ship and in a mesoscale site, a multi-scale ocean model was developed in which a small-scale domain involving the injection ship moves in the mesoscale domain. The simulation results suggested that the moving ship is effective in suppressing the rise of CO2 concentration. Copyright © by The International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers.
