Program Minisymposium 2012


15-20 min, they will be starting points for discussions:

  • Digital rock physics: Three levels of understanding by Erik H. Saenger
  • Wave induced fluid flow: From numerical bounds to applications by Germán Rubino
  • Attenuation and dispersion, theory and experiments by Yves Guéguen
  • The effect of methane hydrate morphology and water saturation on seismic wave attenuation in sand under shallow sub-seafloor conditions by Angus Best
  • Low frequency attenuation measurements by Claudio Madonna and Nicola Tisato
  • Interpretation of attenuation measurements: Do we "see" mesoscopic flow? by Beatriz Quintal
