The term carbon sequestration refers to any means of locking up CO2 over very long periods in order to mitigate against the effects of anthropogenic climate change. There are three broad types of carbon sequestration:

Clair is a Research Fellow at Tyndall Manchester where she contributes to the Energy research theme.
Clair has over 20 years experience in Integrated Assessment approaches, in the context of both long-range transboundary air pollution and climate change. Her research has integrated technical and social science analyses, featuring the use of long term scenarios and public and stakeholder participation in the context of energy and climate change. Her primary focus is on the assessment of carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS), including the use of biomass energy with CCS.
Clair has extensive experience in energy-related social scientific research, including the media analysis, public attitudes and responses and ethical assessment, as well as more integrated socio-technical assessments (including Delphi, roadmapping and multi-criteria assessments). She is the Research Area Champion (Societal Responses) for the UK CCS Research Centre (ukccsrc.ac.uk).
