Vol 2 Chapter 26: Human Health and Ecological Effects of Carbon Dioxide Exposure

Robert P. Hepple

Abstract: Understanding of human health and ecosystem impacts from exposure to elevated concentrations of CO2 in air, soils and water is needed to assess the consequences of leakage from geologic storage projects. This chapter places CO2 storage in the context of the global carbon cycle, reviews information on human health effects and ecosystem impacts from exposure to high concentrations of CO2, and reviews industrial uses of CO2 and describes the regulations put in place to protect workers and the public. This information provides the foundation for understanding and assessing risks of leakage from geological storage projects.
