IP technique detects bacteria growth in sand

To interpret the geophysical field data, it is necessary to know the signature of different kinds of bacteria and to assess the sensitivity of the geophysical methods for these specific applications. This application is quite new for the geophysical Induced...

New PhD student and planning for next Alingsås tests

Last week the MIRACHL team got some most welcome new blood when the PD student Nikolas B. Höglund joined us. Nicolas will soon present himself on this site. We also made a short visit to the Alingsås site for checking the functionality of our installations, download...

MSc publication on first Alingsås data

Just before the summer vacations Wei, Haoyu presented his MSc thesis "Interpretation of geophysical and geochemical data in a 3D geological model construction of a contaminated site" with data from the Alingsås site. Here is a teaser from the abstract. In this thesis...

Regenesis visiting MIRACHL for seminar

A lot is going on in the project now. Last week Jack Shore from Regenesis (www.regenesis.com) visited the project for a seminar on in situ remediation. At the Alingsås site their products are injected for remediation of the contaminant. The aim of the MIRACHL project...

Seismic field campaign at the Alingsås site last weekend

Last weekend parts of the MIRACHL team performed a new field campaign at the Alingsås site. This time, we used another method from our large geophysical toolbox, a seismic landstreamer, in order to further investigate the area and determine the depth to the bedrock....

Sofia has found the scientific track(s)

The scientific carrier starts with a period of searching. What to do, what to ask, what to answer and how to investigate the hypothesis. Sofia, one of the project's four PhD students,  now seems to have come through this searching phase. This morning she presented her...

Inspiring reference group meeting

Just before Christmas the whole project team and the reference group gathered for half a day workshop, which turned out to be an inspiring day. After the first year of preparations and baseline measurements on the three sites Hagfors, Alingsås and Färgaren there was a...

Update on Alingsås site October

During October, it has been full activity at the Alingsås site. Base line measurements with DCIP has been carried out, as well as groundwater sampling (both PBGC and CSIA). After that, a DCIP-monitoring system has been digged down in the ground together with...
