The Gordon Research Seminar on Flow & Transport in Permeable Media is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
The meeting will focus on the scientific challenges of understanding multiscale phenomena of flow and transport in permeable media systems that are of fundamental importance to all problems in natural and constructed systems. Possible topics may include, but are not limited to, the following areas investigated by theoretical, experimental and numerical approaches: characterization of pore scale phenomenon, upscaling pore scale processes to continuum scale, multiscale numerical methods, coupled flow and geochemical/geomechanical processes, and flow and transport in heterogeneous and fractured systems.
