Development of a model of geodynamic phenomena occurring in a specific crystalline rock mass based on 3D monitoring of recent movements in cracks, characterization of stress conditions in the massif and using the outputs of previous research and data obtained in the Grimsel underground laboratory and existing European monitoring network EU tecnet. The contract is divided into the following two parts: (i) Support and coordination of the Lasmo experiment at the Grimsel Test Site, (ii) Development of a geodynamic model within the Lasmo experiment at the Grimsel Test Site.
