Geophysics Call for Papers

Geomechanics for heterogeneous and time-dependent rocks and its applications to unconventional reservoirs


This special section of Geophysics discusses the inherent heterogeneous and timedependent
nature of unconventional reservoir rocks, and the importance of rock fabric to
geomechanical applications. It reviews measurements of heterogeneity and rock fabric,
obtained at various scales (seismic to laboratory sample scale), and their scaling
relationships. It reviews the rock fabric of layering, lithologic interfaces, mineralized
fractures, and other weak discontinuities present in unconventional reservoirs. It reviews
time-dependent deformation (creep) and time-dependent rock/fluid interactions, for
example, associated to clay and organic content, and their increased surface area. It
integrates these to propose better models and more representative solutions to
geomechanical problems. More information click here.

Submission deadline: 30 November 2016
