I am trying to model an oil water separation problem. I defined the oil as the dispersed phase, but it should coalesce and form a continuous froth at the surface. I am wondering how I can switch the oil from dispersed particle phase in one part of the domain to continuous phase in another.

Thanks in advance for your help.
