WP3: In-situ demonstration of innovative monitoring techniques

Objectives

  • Demonstrate that monitoring strategies are available that will not be detrimental to long term safety.
  • Demonstrate the use of non-intrusive monitoring techniques (for sensing and for signal transmission) in different host rock types.
  • Demonstrate the capability to monitor events inside sealed and inaccessible repository areas, including the behaviour of the swelling clay plug.
  • Demonstrate the ability to monitor a horizontal, vitrified waste disposal tunnel.
  • Demonstrate that signal diagnostics can be aided by redundant, multi-technique approaches.
