「CO_2の深海挙動シミュレーション」に関する討論 Comments on "Simulation on Sedimentation of CO_2 in Deep Sea"
This letter gives some critical comments on the paper in the title authored by Saji <I>et al</I>. [published in <I>Kagaku Kogaku Ronbunshu</I>, 22, 1273-1280 (1996)]. We point out that the momentum and the CO<SUB>2</SUB>-conservation equations used to simulate the dissolution of CO<SUB>2</SUB> in the sea may be seriously erroneous. An inconsistency between these equations and some of the results of the simulation is suspected. Questions are raised on the authors' assumptions of physical quantities such as the hydrate density, the CO <SUB>2</SUB>-in-seawater solubility, and the initial size of liquid-CO<SUB>2</SUB> droplets or hydrate balls released into the sea.
