Funded under: FP5-EESD
Country: France

Short seismic profile across the Aigion harbour

Description of the task (preliminary works carried out before and during the drilling of CORSSA boreholes):
Performance of a 720 m-long High Resolution Seismic Profile across the Aigion harbour.

Application of the result:
- 2D expected geometry before drilling for geologic layers and faults.
- Verification of the presence of a strong reflector at depth corresponding to the expected stiff conglomerate layer.
- Assessment of the continuity of the stiff conglomerate layer (without lenses) at depth for the deep reference accelerometer host rocks.
- Identification of strong reflectors that could be used in the expected geological cross section.
- Establishment of a velocity law (Vp) for the first 200 metres.
