imaGeau was founded in 2008 as a spin-off from the national research laboratory in Geophysics (CNRS Montpellier Geophysic laboratory part of Montpellier University). It has strong experte in both Geophysics and Hydrogeology.
imaGeau provides a unique tool to understand/monitor groundwater resources. imaGeau's patented Subsurface Monitoring Device (SMD) is autonomous in energy and is installed in a 2" borehole where it automatically and continuously monitors the fluid conductivity in the soil pores up to an aquifer depth of 300m.
The SMD delivers online graphic representations with a high spatial and time resolution of the stratification and dynamic of the aquifer and indicates the evolution of potential pollution (e.g., by seawater, leakage, etc.). SMD provides relevant information about the water quality in aquifers and can be applied for quality monitoring in Managed Aquifer Recharge.
imaGeau has installed SMD networks in France, Spain, the Netherlands, Israel and Jordan and works with local governments and water agencies, research institutes (e.g., Deltares, BRGM, CNRS) and industries (e.g. SAUR, VEOLIA, SOLVAY). imaGeau puts a strong emphasis on R&D and has been participating in a number of EU funded collaborative research programmes such as MUSTANG, PANACEA or TRUST.
Main tasks in the project:
The AquaNES Project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no. 689450
