The experimental observation of biofilm growth in porous media is complicated by the heterogeneous nature of the biofilm and of the porous media growth environments and the amount of convective flow through the biofilm in a biofouled porous media is currently an open question. A recently developed magnetic resonance (MR) experimental technique, displacement-relaxation correlation, allows the displacements of fluid in the biofilm to be distinguished from those in the open pores by separating the MR signal based on the T2 relaxation and attempts to address this question.
