Hundred-year-old law on fluid flow overturned by Imperial Researcher:  Dr Catriona Reynolds new paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences challenges current thinking on pore-scale Darcy's Law.  Read more on this discovery which could lead to a range of improvements including advances in Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) 

Dr Ronny Pini, QCCSRC Lecturer was awarded the UKCCSRC International Collaboration Fund (Call 3) to spend five weeks in California as part of a joint research collaboration involving Stanford University (with Sally Benson) and the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (with Jim O’Neil and Nick Vandehey). The goal of the visit was to carry out a series of experiments to study solute mixing and spreading in reservoir rocks by applying a novel - and very promising - experimental approach that combines two non-invasive imaging methods, namely X-ray Computed Tomography (X-ray CT) and Positron Emission Tomography (PET).  Read more...
