Reaction-Diffusion Systems in Geoscience Applications (Part I of II)

Reaction-diffusion systems model chemical fluid processes and arise in a wide variety of applied contexts. Typically these systems are weakly coupled semilinear systems with diffusion and advection. Specific areas of application in the geosciences include enhanced recovery processes in hydrocarbon reservoirs, geological deposition, geochemistry, climate modeling, combustion theory, and biorestoration of contaminated groundwater. This two-part minisymposium will feature both general theoretical results and specific applications. Both analytical and computational methods will be discussed.
