Abstract : Geophysical methods can be useful tools for detection of leakages in dams and waste disposals. Self-potential/geoelectrical and thermometrical technics as well as infrared imagery procedure are still under the development in this field of application. Major problems concerning these methods are the reproducibility of the data and the elimination of noise effects. This symposium is planned to serve as an international exchange of knowledge and experiences concerning the application of the methods mentioned above for the detection of subsurface waterflow, especially in connection with leakages in dams and waste disposal sites. The main topics will deal with fundamental aspects, theory of methods, instrumentation, data acquisition, processing and interpretation as well as noise effects.
