Table 2 Classification of different locations based on measurement and simulation

From: Coupled hydraulic-mechanical simulation of seasonally induced processes in the Mont Terri rock laboratory (Switzerland)

Investigation method Output location
TDR 1: 38.5 cm TDR 2: 99.5 cm TDR 3: 160.5 cm TDR 4: 221.5 cm TDR 5: 282.5 cm
TDR probe SIDZ DZ DZ SZ SZ
Core samples DZa DZ DZ SZ SZ
Simulation (7 years) SIDZ DZ SZ SZ SZ
Simulation (15 years) SIDZ DZ DZ DZ SZ
  1. SIDZ seasonally influenced desaturated zone, DZ desaturated zone, SZ saturated zone
  2. aThe investigation of the core samples does not provide any information on seasonal changes. TDR 1 lies in the desaturated zone, however it is not possible to state whether this zone is seasonally influenced
