Brief description of the organisation The National Research Council of Spain (CSIC) is a Spanish national network of research institutes. The team participating in MUSTANG comprises two groups: Hydrogeology (GHS with an associate unit at the Technical University of Catalonia, UPC) and Environmental Geochemistry.

The group combines experience on Groundwater and Geochemistry, including the characterization of permeable media by means of hydraulic, hydro-chemical and environmental isotope data, solids and aqueous solutions and the quantitative assessment of water-rock interactions, with special emphasis on low permeability fractured media. Development of numerical modelling techniques and other part work in data acquisition both in the field (down-hole logging and monitoring equipment) and in the lab (access to XRD, TEM, AFM, etc). It has also a long record of collaboration on both publicly and privately funded projects, including more than 15 EU projects.

The team will contribute to the project through the identification of the time and space scales that are relevant for understanding and modeling of CO2 spreading and for evaluation of performance and risk assessment.
