Flow in Porous Media

The transmitted light technique was used to visualize experimental conditions in fracture systems as well as engineered/seived sands. In fact the earliest FLow Lab experiments, and Pre-Flow Lab experiments, involved the study of water fingers propagating into unsaturated sand.
