A preliminary high-resolution simulation of plume<br/>migration in a homogeneous, horizontal aquifer<br>under the effect of convective dissolution trapping.<br/>The simulation employs the fluid properties of the<br/>analogue fluid system (water and propylene-glycol)<br/>and a very low value of the Rayleigh number (Ra = 1; 000).
