NATCARB Atlas Coal Basins 10km Grid

This is the NATCARB Atlas 10km square grids covering coal basins within all Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership (RCSP) domains in the US and parts of Canada. Each 10km grid contains information about the coal basin formation below. Attributes associated with each 10km grid are (with (Units, Attribute name) after): Partnership name (PARTNERSHIP), Resource/formation name (RESOURCE_Name), Resource area (square meters, RSC_AREA_C ), CO2 capacity estimate volumes (in metric tons per feature): vol_low (P10), vol_med (P50), and vol_high (P90) (based on Goodman et al. 2011), Depth to top of formation from surface - reported as "0" for all, meaning not reported (feet, depth_ft), Formation mean thickness (feet, thickness_), Assessed (1= yes, 0= volume estimates not made)

Layer should be used in ArcGIS to view. All attributes for the layer and units are described above.

Please note: not all grids have been assessed for storage estimates. For the grids that have been assessed, please refer to Goodman et al. 2011 "U.S. DOE methodology for the development of geologic storage potential for carbon dioxide at the national and regional scale"
