The upper section of the Earth’s crust (from 10m to 10km), is the privileged site for numerous and complex interactions between human activity and Earth’s processes.
The exploitation of subterranean reservoirs, underground waste storage, exploitation of energy resources (fossil and renewable), natural and anthropic risks, or even urban, agricultural and industrial pollution remediation, all still pose a great number of fundamental questions that remain unanswered for.
➢ Subterranean reservoir hydrodynamics
➢ Hydrothermal reservoirs and geothermalism
➢ Geological CO2 storage
The team is structured to enable the joint realisation of geophysical, hydrodynamical, petrophysical, microstructural and geochemical approaches.
The subsurface investigations led by the laboratory are, in most cases, done simultaneously through borehole measurements (LGHF, ORE H+, IDDP, ICDP, IODP), experimentation (in the field and in the laboratory), and modelisation (theoretical, digital or analogical).
The SUBSURFACE team’s activity is very largely based on the use of a group of experimental field sites covering a great geological, petrophysical and hydrodynamical variety.
➢ ORE H+
The team is composed of 11 permanent personnel (researchers, research-lecturers and engineers), of 12 non permanent of which 6 are PhD students.
