For stable displacement we discuss the microscopic dispersion of stable saturation fronts (capillary dispersion zone) and the role of microstructure heterogeneity.
Stable Displacement Regime: Capillary Dispersion Zone. Viscosity stabilizes interfacial perturbations when a more viscous fluid displaces a less viscous fluid (M > 1) at sufficiently large capillary numbers.
It is also known that the frequency of dispersive wave emission can be changed when pumping normal dispersion zone and abnormal dispersion zone, which is described by (17).
To Walcott, the Caribbean is a dispersion zone, a sort of switchboard with input from and output to other parts of the world.
