Density of CO2 at Pressure

The pressure-density curves for liquid carbon dioxide at various temperatures (solid green line = 10°C, dotted green line = 4°C, dashed blue line = 2°C and solid blue line = 0°C; overlaid on the pressure-density profile (solid magenta line) for seawater at our experimental site. In practice, the neutral bouyancy point for liquid carbon dioxide at 2°C is reached at about 26.50 MPA or approximately 2600 m depth.
