Hi Lezin,

Please see the wiki for documentation:

The unit is dynes/cm.

Emne: [Opm] Surface tension in opm-upscaling

Hello everyone,

I have been digging up in the opm upscaling code and I noticed that the
surface tension is defaulted to 1. What unit does this correspond to? I
could not find anywhere in the code a reference to the commonly used
surface tension unit (dynes/cm) so I was assuming that the default unit
would be N/m, but apparently not.

Alternatively, if I were to provde the routine with a value for sigma,
what unit should it be in?

Thank you
