The research project focuses on seismic mapping of Upper Palaeozoic faults in Nagra’s 3D-seismic block NL-16 covering the siting region Nördlich Lägern’.  The interpretation of the seismic data leads to a better understanding of the regional tectono-stratigraphic history and aids the risk-assessment of fault zones adjacent to the potential deep geological repository.
