Measurement of displacement time and length scale dependent dynamics by pulsed gradient spin echo nuclear magnetic resonance in porous media directly provides the preasymptotic hydrodynamic dispersion coefficient. This allows for comparison with nonequilibrium statistical mechanics models of hydrodynamics dispersion in porous media. Preasymptotic dispersion data and models provide characterization of porous media structure length scales relevant to transport and are related to the permeability and sample heterogeneity.
