Workshop 2

Multi-scale in situ investigation of fractured media: theory and field practice

Ploemeur, France

15 October 2017 to 20 October 2017

Objective: provide advanced knowledge and practice on state of the art field methods for quantifying heterogeneous subsurface storage compartments at different scales in fractured media and detecting limited-size active fractures, orientation, extent and connectivity by single and cross borehole tests. The workshop will take advantage of the existing hydrogeophysical experimental infrastructures present at the H+ Ploemeur observatory to show the complementarity of different methods to investigate complex fractured media through field practice.

Presentations during this workshop :

  • About the Ploemeur Site, by O.Bour
  • About the Characterization of Subsurface flow,  by O.Bour
  • On the field (Relations depth-surface in Guidel + deformation), by Laurent Longuevergne
  • DFN model, by C.Darcel & P.Davy
  • Gravimetry, by P. Vermeulen
