Findings in Geoscience Reported from University of Iceland

May 16, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- New research on Science is the subject of a report. According to news reporting from Reykjavik, Iceland, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "A new numerical scheme for fully tensorial treatment of anisotropic flow within model layers (2D) has been designed and implemented into the TOUGH family of simulators."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from the University of Iceland, "The new scheme has been rigorously tested against a simple theoretical solution to Darcy's law as well as a more complicated example solved by numerical software packages with anisotropic flow capabilities."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "In all cases, a good agreement with the new scheme has been found."
