The overall objective of this project was to demonstrate and validate a new closed-hole passive sensing technology for fractured media the Fractured Rock Passive Fluxmeter FRPFM. The FRPFM provides simultaneous measurement of 1 the presence of flowing fractures, 2 the location of active or flowing fractures 3 active fracture orientation i.e., dip and azimuth 4 direction of groundwater flow in each fracture 5 cumulative magnitude of groundwater flux in each fracture and 6 cumulative magnitude of contaminant flux in each fracture. Various technologies exist to measure 1, 2 and 3 above however, the FRPFM is the only technology that also measures 4, 5 and 6.
