Groundwater flow modelling under ice sheet conditions: Scoping calculations
2010 (English)Report (Other academic)
SKB, POSIVA (Finland) and NWMO (Canada) have established in 2009 the GAP project (Greenland Analogue Project). These organisations want to improve current understanding of continental ice sheet and permafrost effects on groundwater flow and water chemistry in crystalline rocks at depths of a potential repository. The idea is to apply the Greenland ice sheet as an analogue to future glaciations in Fennoscandia and Canada. The GAP project will enable to perform geological and geophysical investigations, measurements of glacial hydrology and hydrogeology as well as geochemical analyses in relation to current ice sheet conditions in Greenland.
