Computational Methods in the Geosciences: Porous Media (Part 1 of 2)

Co-sponsored by SIAM Activity Group on Geosciences

This session will explore some central problems for flow in porous media: geostatistics, small length scale variability and its influence on macroscopic flow, and complex chemistry (and biochemistry) of flow systems. The speakers will discuss advanced solution methods depending on parallel computing and multigrid methods, and will relate these ideas to practical problems in oil reservoir production and the environmental remediation of groundwater. This session will be of interest to computational scientists and modelers and numerical analysts with an interest in flow in porous media or an interest in current use of high performance parallel computing methods. Organizers: James G. Glimm, State University of New York, Stony Brook and Mary F. Wheeler, Rice University
