This book provides a comprehensive and process-based account of the genesis of carbonate rocks, from which the authors derive and describe current modelling techniques that seek to quantify their flow behaviour in the subsurface.

The book deals with the physical and chemical processes that govern fluid flow which can in turn lead to testable and predictive models for reservoir behaviour. It takes a novel, highly multi-disciplinary approach that nonetheless maintains a holistic narrative thread. The book describes complex phenomena in order to show how a process-based understanding across several disciplines can - in sum - result in a better clarity of vision and approach to understanding these economically important porous media.
