Efficient usage of underground resources is becoming increasingly important, as it is linked with the principle of sustainable development. Underground geological formations contain significant amounts of oil, gas and heat and can also be used for storage of carbon dioxide, natural gas or radioactive waste. Development of technologies to utilize these underground resources and spaces requires appropriate understanding of geological and hydrological processes controlling injection, extraction or interaction with subsurface fluids (Mousavi Nezhad, 2010; Mousavi Nezhad et al., 2011, 2018, 2019; Mousavi Nezhad and Javadi, 2011).
This special issue is devoted to the new trends in geo-energy and geo-resources modeling and applications, the main subject of the FREFRAC workshop that was organized during the 3rd United Kingdom InterPore Conference held at the University of Warwick on September 4–5, 2017.
