Preliminary experimental results and a numerical interpretation of porosity variations in saline media induced by temperature gradients are presented in this paper. The experimental results show a pattern of porosity variation with the same features as obtained theoretically in Olivella et al (1996a). An interpretation of the experimental results using CODE_BRIGHT (Olivella et al, 1996b) has been carried out. Since it is possible to reproduce the experimental results with the numerical approach it can be concluded that the mechanism for porosity changes induced by temperature gradients proposed in a preceding work effectively takes place.
