H028:
Characterization and evolution of heterogeneous interfaces in porous media





Session ID#: 23694

Session Description:
Heterogeneous solid/fluid and fluid/fluid interfaces in porous media influence complexities of fluid flow and changes in formation properties. Large uncertainties remain in understanding the nature and evolution of these interfaces, the processes that occur at interfaces, and the impact on fluid flow and formation properties. Additionally, interface interactions and reactions occur over a wide range of spatial and temporal scales. Complex fluids including supercritical fluids, suspensions and foams, for example, may further complicate systems and introduce new uncertainties in understanding multi-phase interactions and reactions. This session welcomes experimental, numerical, and theoretical investigations that advance understanding of the nature or evolution of interfaces in porous media on all scales. We especially welcome submissions on wettability, multi-phase fluid systems, pore-mineral-fluid interactions, and investigations coupling one or more approaches.
