overview

  • Michael Sukop is a Professor in the Earth and Environment department. His research is focused on computational fluid dynamics in cavernous, fractured and porous media. Solute transport in these complex media and its simulation, including inverse modeling, are key interests. This research is done at pore to aquifer scales using both traditional groundwater models and lattice Boltzmann models. Single and multi-phase lattice Boltzmann models figure prominently in research aimed at better methods for solute transport in karst aquifers, and for water and nonaqueous fluid behavior in fractured and porous media - especially unsaturated media. Sukop maintains ongoing interests in fractals, multifractals, cellular automata, percolation phenomena, geostatistics and surface chemistry and their applications.
