PermaFoam is an OpenFOAM ( solver for cryohydrogeology. It solves coupled water and heat transfers in variably saturated porous media, considering freeze/thaw of the pore water. The main field of application is the modeling of permafrost thermo-hydrological dynamics. A first example of application may be found in the paper "Water and energy transfer modeling in a permafrost‐dominated, forested catchment of Central Siberia: The key role of rooting depth", by Orgogozo et al., published in 2019 in Permafrost and Periglacial Processes.
