Flow in porous media is difficult to model due to the non-linearity of the equations but more importantly, due to the lack of knowledge about earth parameters. In this talk we show how geophysical imaging can be used in order to compensate for the lack of information about the subsurface, and improve our ability to image and forecast subsurface flow.
