This session will exchange and discuss novel and integrated techniques to examine the transport properties of geomaterials. Contributions are welcome on the subjects of (i) fluid flow, permeability, fluid conductivity at all frequencies and scales, (ii) electrical properties, conductivity, resistivity and permittivity in both real and complex domains and at all frequencies and scales, (iii) heat flow, geothermal states, thermal conductivity and diffusivity, (iv) transport of energy by elastic waves, velocities and dispersion of pressure shear and other types of elastic wave, (v) fractured and intact materials. Invited speakers include Brian Berkowitz (Weizmann Institute), Alexis Maineult (Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris) and Marie Violay (Université Montpellier).
