ShortTerm == 1 means the model is being modified to estimate the cost of a single CO2 source near the high insolation areas -- as they would be with the Four Corners generation plant, for example. The destination would be a smaller area than is required for national photosynthetic fixation in algae. In this short term case transport would not be via the National CO2 Pipeline infrastructure but would, rather, involve cryogenic CO2 tanker cars on rail. Consequently the CO2 transport infrastructure is much less expensive but does not achieve nation-wide gathering nor wide-spread distribution in high insolation areas.
