Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is used to obtain local values of the porosity and fluid flow velocity in a water-saturated sample of Casper sandstone during water injection. Histograms of the porosity and axial flow velocity are shown. In addition, the correlation between local fluid velocity and local porosity is shown graphically and indicates that the average velocity increases with porosity, as it should.
