Practical information

WS3 will run for three full days starting no later than 9 AM (February 6-8) and WS4 for four full days (12-15 February) following the details in our project application. This means that February 5 is a day of travel for arriving to Lausanne in the evening and that February 16 is a day of travel to leave Lausanne.
On February 15, we will end no later than 6 PM, so travel home in the evening of February 15 is possibly an option for some of the ESRs.

Objective: The workshop programme introduces the mathematical and physical basis of flow and reactive transport in porous media, and the numerical methods for predictive modelling. It discusses scale effects for approaches based on the advection-dispersion equation and upscaling methods to get alternative effective equations (i.e., CTRW or MRMT for non-Fickian transport). Special emphasis is laid on mixing and mixing-controlled reactions in heterogeneous media as well as on field methods for the identification and characterization of non-ideal behaviour. Hands on practices on simple problems will illustrate predictive modelling honouring extensive data sets and acknowledges uncertainty.
