Transient seismo-electromagnetic phenomena are especially appealing to hydrogeophysics because of their potential to characterize the fluids contained in the reservoir rocks with the resolution of seismic methods. Indeed seismo-electromagnetic tomography is expected to combine the sensitivity of electrical properties to water-content and permeability, to the high spatial resolution of seismic surveys, which can not be achieved with other geophysical methods. To be able to develop the potential of this innovative method, a better understanding of the physical processes and a reliable quantification of the conversion between seismic energy and electric energy are necessary. Moreover a suitable interpretation of the observations, especially in the shallow subsurface, needs to take into account the water-content, the rock conductivity, and the water conductivity.

Electrokinetic coupling phenomena can be created at the microscopic scale when there is a relativemotion of electrolyte ions with respect to the mineral surface (grains). Seismic wave propagation in fluid-filled porous media generates conversions from seismic to electromagnetic energy which can be observed at the macroscopic scale, due to this electrokinetic coupling at the pore scale.

The main objective of this project is to perform detailed studies of these seismoelectric coupling effects, both experimentally and theoretically, to develop an analysis of the observed signals, in order to improve our understanding of these phenomena and to assess their potential use for the characterization of the fluid contents of porous media.
