Towards water content monitoring in the vadose zone from active seismic

Abstract : V P / V S or Poison’s ratio classically permit imaging fluids in rocks but this strategy remains underused in near- surface applications, hence in hydrogeophysics. Yet, P-wave refraction tomography and surface-wave dispersion inversion can be combined to produce 2D V P and V S sections from a single acquisition set up. This approach recently proved to be efficient in the study of various hydrosystems and in the imaging of the Critical Zone. We now suggest its time-lapse application in order to help the monitoring of water content in the vadose zone/aquifer continuum. With both laboratory experiments and field data, we show how the temporal variations of P-wave travel times and surface-wave dispersion are strongly associated to the variations of water content observed locally, thus encouraging to exploit the full wealth of seismic signals in hydrogeophysics.
