in Dr. Wildenschild's group focuses on physics, chemistry, and
microbiology of relevance to flow and transport in porous media, -
generally applied to the subsurface environment. And in many cases
involving multi-phase flow phenomena.
primary focus is detailed and highly controlled experiments (addressing
flow, solute and mass transfer, microbial alteration and transport)
that can help us evaluate new theory and numerical models alike. We
believe in the necessity of very accurate experiments to test theory
and models alike, - we then use numerical models to expand
investigations beyond the potential constraints of experiments.
motivation is to provide answers to questions of importance to
subsurface water pollution and management, remediation strategies, and
the processes of flow and transport in porous media in general.
