Analysis of infiltration using tracers in underground mines – study case in a karst site

The use of dye tracers is a very useful tool in studies to better understand underground hydrology. Tracer studies can help answer the following questions:

– Where does the water go
– How long does it take to get there
– What happens on the way
– How the iteration between surface and groundwater occurs

In this webinar Water Services and Technologies expert Nilson Guiguer will discuss the advantages and applicability of dye tracers and present a case study recently completed by WST in a karst zone.
