Applied Mathematics and Computation Seminar Juan Restrepo Nearshore Sticky Waters

I will describe and explain a mechanism whereby pollutants such as oil slicks coming to shore by the action of ocean currents will slow down and possibly even park itself just beyond the surf zone.

Modeling multi-phase fluid flow in the subsurface is a notoriously difficult challenge.  One must account for processes occurring on a broad range of scales; typically different modeling approaches are needed at different length scales so that the underlying physics can be properly described. At the pore scale (with grain size ranging from micron to milimeter, direct simulation of Stokes flow in a medium with rich geometry is extremely costly.

Textural equilibrium develops if the solid-liquid reaction kinetics is fast or time scales are long and is therefore common in partially molten materials. Similar behavior is observed in  development of connected water network in polycrystalline ice in polar ice sheets as well as formation of connected brine networks in rock salt. Rock salt and its permeability  is of specific interest in petroleum exploration: thick layers of salt cannot  be avoided in Gulf of Mexico fields.
