Maximal values of as a function of q for various choices of A and R.
Dependence of q c = ε c Ra and of the critical wavenumber k c on the parameters A, where A is a measure of the interface movement, i.e., and R, where the dimensionless viscosity is μ = 1 + Rc. The error estimates are inferred from Fig. 6 as the maximum and minimal wavenumber at zero growth rate and from Fig. 7 as the critical q also at zero maximum growth rate using visual inspection of the actual data. The values in the first two columns are based on typical field parameters, i.e., a reservoir at 2200 m depth with a temperature of 76 °C, a project time of 10 years, a interface movement of 4.7 m, and a correlation for in situ viscosity for a 2 M salt solution at reservoir temperature. The other columns are representative for our laboratory experiments (see Sec. V ).
