This volume is concerned primarily with transmission of fluid through porous media, the development, or loss, of porosity, and their consequences. Historically, this would have been of primary interest to the hydrocarbons and hydrogeology communities, but as the authors point out throughout the volume, pore-scale processes are ubiquitous and are also relevant for geothermal energy applications and anyone interested in metamorphism and metasomatism, or the delicate interplay between thermodynamics and kinetics.

The authors reveal the improvements that have emerged in the last 20 or so years in several parallel fields related to pore-scale processes, including imaging, experimental and modelling. What...
