Abstract

In spite of many years of intensive study, our current abilities to actually quantify and predict contaminant migration in natural geological formations remain severely limited. While transport theories that treat ‘homogeneous’ porous media are mathematically convenient, such homogeneity rarely, if ever, exists in the field. The heterogeneity of natural geological formations at a wide range of scales necessitates consideration of more sophisticated transport theories.
