Many applications such as enhanced oil recovery, in situ combustion and contaminant transport are complex processes that are governed by flow in porous media dynamics.

Predicting these flows is difficult since many of the parameters in the equations are unknown.

In this talk we will present a method to integrate geophysical imaging and multiphase flow to better predict the flow. We show that the problem is mathematically similar to the problem of super resolution and that it is possible to adopt and modify techniques that are developed for super resolution to the prediction of flow in porous media.
