Long-term monitoring and EDZ (Excavated Damage Zone) evaluation is carried out by this multi-optical measurement probe in the depth of 350m vertical shaft of Horonobe Underground Research Center project of the Japan Atomic Energy Agency. We have developed a multi-optical measurement probe incorporating an optical AE sensor, an optical water pressure sensor and an optical temperature sensor. Result of the measurement of AE, water pressure and temperature, it was made clear the influence of the shaft excavation. And from the source location analysis, it was found EDZ was less than 1.5m from shaft wall.
