Poor site selection and gas leakage will undermine the credibility of geological storage." The researchers' seismic data found that the aquifer is a continuous, interconnected reservoir which rises to a formation close to the surface known as a 'subcrop'.
The available data were then blended and interpolated to allow visualisation at different zoom levels.
Spatial coverage of the area is incomplete and is limited by the surveys which have been conducted to date.
Tourism and food and drink play a big role, as does the service sector.
Inverness is developing as a centre for life sciences commercialisation and research.
Stretching from Ross-shire south to Badenoch and Strathspey, the area is home to around 143,500 people, more than a third of them in the Highland capital of Inverness.
