Dense nodal seismic array temporary experiment on the banks of the Sévraisse River in Alpes (RESIF-SISMOB)

Florent Gimbert &
This experiment consists in continuous seismic records acquired during an entire summer season (early June-early October) at 40 stations along the banks of the Sévraisse River (French Alps). The seismic array consists in sub arrays of 5 sensors designed to enable sub-wavelength analysis while covering a representative part of the river braided reach. Our ultimate goal is to locate river seismic sources generated by sediment transport and/or fluid flow as well as to evaluate their...

Dense nodal seismic array temporary experiment on Alpine Glacier of Argentière (RESIF-SISMOB)

Philippe Roux, Florent Gimbert &
Seismology can yield key observational insights on glacier dynamical processes and structure characteristics. Spatializing the information gained from seismic signals however requires the deployment of dense seismic arrays, which has recently become routine in a wide range of geophysical contexts but has remained limited in glaciated environments. Here we present a dense seismic array experiment made of 98, 3-component and 35-days-long continuous records acquired in early spring on the Argentière Glacier, French Alps. The seismic...

CHAUVET temporary experiment for study on seismic hazards applied to the Chauvet Cave, France (RESIF-SISMOB)

Laurence Audin
The Chauvet Cave (Ardèche), discovered in 1994, is characterised by its cave art, which is among the oldest images of mankind, by its numerous palaeontological remains and by its remarkable state of preservation. It has been condemned to the public since its discovery for preservation. However, this stable state of preservation is linked to the climatological regulation of the scree that closes the entrance to the prehistoric porch. It seems to be settling down and...
