Special Issue "Characterization and Simulation of Carbonate Reservoirs"
A special issue of Geosciences (ISSN 2076-3263).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (23 August 2019).
Interests: carbonate sedimentology; diagenesis and petroacoustics
Interests: exploration geology; petroleum geology
Understanding the mechanism of fluid flow within subsurface carbonate reservoirs has become a major challenge for many engineering processes such as oil and gas extraction, the assessment and production of water resources, and geothermal fluids and the geological sequestration of CO2. Carbonate reservoirs are commonly characterized by considerable and multi-scale heterogeneity, ranging from the micron-scale to the regional scale, due to the complex interaction between geodynamic, climatic, paleoceanographic, diagenetic and biological parameters.
This Special Issue aims to publish innovative studies that include methods for characterizing the three-dimensional depositional, diagenetic, and reservoir architecture of carbonate systems and reservoirs and methods for simulating fluid flows in such heterogeneous media. Special attention will be paid to integrative studies coupling naturalistic (biosedimentology, diagenesis, structural geology) and quantitative (rock physics, quantitative seismics, flow simulation) approaches, based on outcrop and/or subsurface examples. The areas of major interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:
- sedimentological and diagenetic controls on carbonate reservoir architecture,
- carbonate rock physics,
- quantitative seismic characterization of carbonate reservoirs,
- numerical modelling of static and dynamic properties of carbonate reservoirs,
- fluid flow simulation in carbonate reservoirs.
We especially welcome submissions related to the keywords presented at the bottom of this page. Authors are invited to send to the Guest Editors a title, list of authors and abstract of the manuscript they would like to submit to this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Geosciences is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
