Title:
European training network for in situ imaging of dynamic processes in heterogeneous subsurface environments
Duration:
01/01/2017 to 31/12/2020
Abstract / short description:
Most geophysical methods used by practitioners aim at improving our knowledge of subsurface structures. But field techniques for monitoring and imaging flow, transport, and reaction processes that evolve in space and time are still nascent. A new generation of scientists familiar with both emerging earth observation technologies and detailed process upscaling and modelling is thus needed to respond to the increasing demand to understand and monitor subsurface processes at the scientific, public administration and industrial levels. To address this challenge, the ENIGMA training network will create an innovative and entrepreneurial training environment for young scientists. The ENIGMA network builds on the added-value that can be gained by enhancing exchanges between the different areas of excellence represented in the ENIGMA consortium, which have developed relatively independently so far. ENIGMA will thus train a new generation of young researchers in the development of innovative methods for imaging process dynamics in subsurface hydrosystems, in order to enhance understanding and predictive modelling capacities and transfer these innovations to the economic sector. The term imaging refers herein to the spatial representation of subsurface heterogeneity, fluxes, chemical reactions and microbial activity, through the integration of data and approaches from geophysics, hydrology, soil physics, and biogeochemistry.
