ENIGMA Summer School

The 4th edition of the summer school on “Flow and transport in porous and fractured media: Development, Protection, Management and Sequestration of Subsurface Fluids” has took place at the CNRS center in Cargèse (Corsica) from 25.06.2018 to 07.07.2018.

The summer school was funded by CNRS, University of Rennes 1, the European Geosciences Union and ENIGMA.

All presentations held during the Summer School are available on the dedicated YouTube Channel of the Summer School

The objective of the Summer School was to provide participants with a high level interdisciplinary training on the fundamental processes and recent theoretical and methodological advances that have emerged in the study of flow, transport and biogeochemical processes in the subsurface.

We explored in detail the role of these processes within the Critical Zone, in collaboration with OZCAR (French Network of Critical Zone Observatories) and the equipex project CRITEX. We also presented the state of the art in actual applications, including global water management, ecohydrology, geothermal energy, CO2 storage, induced sismicity, sea water intrusion, underground remediation, risk assesment for nuclear waste storage and shale gas exploitation.
