If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Henry Burridge.

I will present numerical simulations of statistically steady high Rayleigh number convection in a porous medium, and discuss in detail both the buoyancy transport (Nusselt number) and the remarkable dynamical structure of the flow. I will extend these results to consider the more physically relevant context of convection from below one boundary, and apply the results to the convective dissolution of carbon dioxide that has been injected into underground brine-saturated porous rock.
