Physical trapping - Definition, glossary, details

The carbon dioxide that is stored underground remains trapped within the underground formation due to the presence of an impermeable rock lying above the reservoir where this CO2 is trapped. This provides a natural seal against any possible leakage of carbon dioxide from the reservoir.
