Exploration Ahead of a Tunnel Face
For a safe and efficient construction of underground structures (e.g., tunnels, galleries, caverns, etc.) it is essential to be provided with a most detailed exploration of the subsurface. Direct observations from boreholes can be ideally complemented with geophysical investigations.
The OnSITE Consortium aims at developing a new seismic system for high resolution prediction of geological structures around and ahead of underground excavations.
