This note deals with three main themes. The first is a discussion of the early literature on convection in porous media. The second is a brief overview of current analytical modeling of single-phase convection in saturated porous media and in composite fluid/porous-medium domains. The third is a brief discussion of some pertinent recent studies involving nanofluids, cellular porous materials, bidisperse and tridisperse porous media.
