A Nagra-operated drillhole investigates the Quaternary sedimentary succession in the Lower Aare Valley near Riniken.
A PhD project with doctoral student Lukas Gegg, supervised by Marius Büchi and Flavio Anselmetti, investigates the drill cores.
In addition, Yama Tomonaga is sampling pore waters from the sediments for dating and noble gas analysis.
As of Friday March 9th, the drillers reached 17 m depth. Target depth is the bedrock expected around 40 m.
