Recent advances in experimental techniques such as X-ray tomography (micro-CT) and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) allow us to obtain the wealth of information on pore space geometry and the dynamics of flow, transport and reactive processes. This has sparked development of new generation of experimental methods and models which describe the properties of interest  retaining the full information of rock heterogeneity.

We welcome contributions focusing on development of experimental techniques and methodologies that provide benchmark datasets; validation studies based on experiment, analytical and numerical models; and studies providing an assessment of uncertainty in experimental methods and model predictions across scales. This session aims to bring together a diverse group of researchers from the range of disciplines, including but not restricted to contaminant transport in surface and subsurface hydrology, geological storage of CO2 and gas/oil recovery.
