Dr. Morrow looking through the core
  • Characterization of pore structure, correlations between  physical properties 

  • Theory of wetting of sphere packs and tubes

  • Adsorption of asphaltenes and crude oil solvency

  • Wettability of crude oil/brine/solid ensembles by dynamic Wilhelmy plate, comparison of static and dynamic contact angles

  • Characterization of wettability, scaling of spontaneous imbibition data

  • Wettability and oil recovery by waterflooding -- effect of brine and crude oil composition, rock mineralogy, temperature and pressure
