Study on hydrogeology on the Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory Project; Groundwater flow and particle tracking simulation on site scale

Kosaka, Hiroshi; Saegusa, Hiromitsu; Kurihara, Arata*; Onoe, Hironori 

In this study, groundwater flow and particle tracking simulations using hydrogeological models have been carried out in order to evaluate the relationship between understanding of groundwater flow characteristics and the amount of information that is increased by the progress of investigations. The influences of difference of the method for interpretation of hydrogeology have been also evaluated. As a result, uncertainties of the groundwater flow characteristics were decreased by increasing the amount of information. It was also found that the distribution of large-scale discrete features and the heterogeneity of groundwater flow characteristics affect the groundwater flow characteristics. Furthermore, the method to identify the target of further investigation and to make plan for the investigation were proposed.
