Report on Seismic Tomography at Grimsel

Deliverable D3.2.1 summarises a programme to develop non-intrusive monitoring of disposal cell mock-ups employing seismic waveform tomography. It is one of a group of 5 research, development and demonstration (RD&D) programmes at underground research laboratories (URLs) within the MoDeRn Project, aimed at advancing the state-of-the-art of disposal facility monitoring. The report concludes that this technique is a promising option for non-intrusive monitoring of radioactive waste repositories. It notes that there are some remaining challenges in applying this technique. The report is supported by two PhD studies (Manukyan 2011 & Marelli, 2012) which are also available on this website.
