IMPROVED DESCRIPTION AND MONITORING OF NEAR SURFACE HAZARDOUS INFILTRATE COMPLEXES BY SHEAR WAVES FOR EFFECTIVE CONTAINMENT REPONSE

Bilal Hassan, Stephen Butt, Charles Hurich

Abstract


Among numerous causes of fluid releases and infiltration in near surface, resurgence in such anthropic activities associated with unconventional resource developments have brought about a resounding concern. Apart from risk of immediate chemical hazard a long term possibly recurrent geo-environmental risk since can also be envisaged as of various prevalent stake holders and broader initiatives. Urgency and exactness for spatiotemporal containment and remediation promotes devising of efficient methods for near subsurface flow complexes monitoring caused by such spills. Swave (Shear waves) spectral imaging results, in relevant context, of a controlled immiscible fluid displacement monitoring experimental study are analyzed and inferred. Against the prospective method as well evaluated, Swave diffraction associated spectral peculiarities are examined, importantly, given background medium characteristics definition invoking fresh insights of microscale significance alongside macroscale potential.
