CO2 2 (IMAGE) Rice University Caption Rice University geoscientist Jonathan Ajo-Franklin and his group have drilled three wells in an out-of-the-way spot on campus for long-duration tests of their fiber-optic instruments. Ajo-Franklin is leading a project funded by the Department of Energy to find and evaluate small faults deep underground at sites that store carbon dioxide (CO2) to keep it out of the atmosphere.
