Abstract: This study investigated the behavior of a non-isothermal CO 2 bubble formed through a leak process from a high-pressure source in a deep sea. Isenthalpic interpretation was employed to predict the state of the bubble just after the leak. Three modes of mass loss from the rising bubble were demonstrated: dissolution induced by mass transfer, condensation by heat transfer and phase separation by pressure decrease. A graphical interpretation of the last mode was provided in the pressure-enthalpy diagram. A thresh…
