During the onshore Carbon dioxide transportation potential risks such as leakages or even pipeline breaches can occur. In such cases CO 2 will be released and dispersed in the ambient having short-time impact on the environment and potentially on human health and long-time consequences on the climate. The hydrodynamical characterization of the released jet expansion and plume dispersion is decisive for understanding the pollutant impacts on the atmosphere and it is an essential part of risk
