Large Scale Monitoring (LASMO) Results

The figure displays how surface observations are linked with the ones made in the underground to obtain a 3D model of

  1. the rock bodies (granite, granodiorite, dykes),
  2. the deformation structures (ductile shear zones and brittle faults)
  3. the recent water pathways.

Fluid flow occurs along 3D structures.

The GTS underground facilities are also available to interested 3rd parties for underground testing and research. The GTS offers cost-effective access to a fully developed, well characterised underground research facility with round the year logistical support - please contact Dr. Ingo Blechschmidt, Head of the Grimsel Test Site, for further details.
