Special Issue "Coupled Flow Processes in Fractured Porous Media Across Scales"


Dear Colleagues,

We are happy to announce a future Special Issue to Interpore Journal titled:

Coupled Flow Processes in Fractured Porous Media Across Scales: Recent Advances in Experimental and Modeling Efforts. This special issue is associated with the Session of the same title taking place at the 2023 AGU Fall Meeting this December in San Francisco, CA, USA. 

Scope and Objectives: The interaction of fluid flow with mechanical-chemical-biological-thermal-processes in fractured geological formations often governs subsurface phenomena and applications ranging from long-term radioactive waste isolation, enhanced geothermal reservoir management, groundwater remediation, carbon sequestration, and hydrogen storage.

This special issue encourages submissions of recent research focusing on mechanistic understanding and predictive capability for coupled processes in fractured media, and we are seeking submissions concerning:

  1.  Experimental and field observations ranging from the single fracture to network scales.
  2. Theoretical and numerical modeling techniques, both computational physics-based and data-driven approaches, for simulations in individual fractures and networks.
  3. The integration of experimental data with modeling efforts for both observational interpretation and model validation.
  4. The applications of flow and geomechanics, solute transport, including colloids and bacteria, mixing and reaction, fluid/mineral interactions, and biofilm formation are also welcome.

Contributions can be made by international researchers from within and outside the group of AGU session participants. For more information on how to submit to this Special Issue, please see here. Additionally, we hope you will support this special issue by forwarding this announcement to any colleagues whose work fits within the context of studying Coupled Flow Processes in Fractured Media Across Scales.
