|Abstract||Monitoring of the atmospheric CO2 concentration may be an integral part of any subsurface storage
project. The MONACO project (Monitoring approach for geological CO2 storage sites using a
hierarchic observation concept; funded by the German Priority Program Geotechnologien) aims to
develop an integrative hierarchic monitoring concept, allowing the detection and assessment of
possible leakages from geological storage formations into the shallow subsurface or atmosphere.
Reliable monitoring of geological CO2 storage sites during and after the operational phase requires
appropriate methods that provide the requisite information in real time. The MONACO concept
combines various investigation methods at different scales, such as open-path Fourier transform
infrared spectrometry (OP-FTIR), soil-gas analytics, geophysics and Direct-Push technology.
Accordingly, monitoring is based on different levels of coverage and resolution. The evaluation of
increased CO2 concentrations in the near surface atmosphere in the range of storage affected sites is
fundamentally required, so quick and efficient observations of large areas can take place and can be
used for subsequently detailed meso-scale investigations. Hence, a further development and adaption
of open path IR atmospheric gas concentration measurements on larger scales is included, to help
realize this hierarchic approach.
