Bedrock geometry determination for conduct construction
Prior to the construction of a water conduct, geotechnical studies showed strong variations for Molasse depth. In order to precisely determine its geometry and support borehole data interpretations, a refraction seismology profile was acquired.
The 360m profile was acquired in one day by a small team comprised of an engineer geophysicist, an assistant geophysicist, a topographer and a helper.
This seismic section upheld borehole data, all the while specifying significant thickness variations in the Quaternary cover.
The acquired seismic profile confirmed the presence of a significant spur in the Molasse. The correlation proved excellent between borehole data and the seismic profile.
