This paper presents a numerical method based on the Lattice Boltzmann (LB) scheme, which aims to accurately model and simulate the carbon dioxide (CO_2) dissolution, diffusion, and convection process in the condition of complex ocean current, turbulence and varying topography of the ocean floor. This LBM based scheme is carefully validated by using several benchmark test cases. A two-dimensional simulation study of CO_2 dissipation from a CO_2 lake is carried out to demonstrate the capability of the proposed method. The influence of the ocean current turbulence on the CO_2 dissolution rate is also ciscussed.
