- NIVA-rapport 
A survey of a proposed experiment area off the west coast of Norway was conducted in July 2002 for the planned International CO2 Sequestration Experiment. The survey consisted of echo sounder transects, ROV dives, CTD profiles, carbon chemistry analysis, 13C /bacterial production rates, sediment grab samples, scavenger trap deployments, long line fishing, fish trap deployments, trawling, zooplankton net hauls, and ADCP current measurements. Based on the survey results, a recommendation for an exact location for the upcoming field experiment has been made. Necessary background and baseline data for the design of the field experiment and sampling scheme were collected.
