Mayumi Hamada is a PhD student at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland. Her research focuses on mixing and reaction in confined environment. In particular she is investigating the impact of physical heterogeneity on transport of a scalar field and on the reaction rate between two chemicals in a confined structure such as porous material. The 2018 EGU poster presents observations at the pore scale of the displacement of a concentration field in a heterogeneous porous medium, and of the reaction rate between two solutes in similar condition. The presented results were obtained experimentally using microfluidics, millifluidics, photography and video-microscopy to visualize processes at the pore scale.
