RAWFILL training days - 2nd and 3rd of February 2021

Online | Site visit of Bertrix landfill

2 February 2021 - 3 February 2021

The RAWFILL partners are pleased to invite you to the RAWFILL training days that will be held on the 2nd and 3rd of February 2021The RAWFILL training days are a good opportunity to learn more about geophysical technics and to discover and learn how to use the tools (ELIF, Cedalion and Orion) developed in the framework of the RAWFILL project. The RAWFILL methodology coupling geophysical measurements and guided samples is a powerful method to characterize the landfill geometry and its content (resources, hazardous waste deposits, etc.). In addition, the RAWFILL tools provide information regarding the future of the landfill site and its economic potential.


Please find below the program of the event:

Day 1 – 2nd of February 2021 – Online event

 The first day of training will be online and will focus on the geophysics and the tools developed within the RAWFILL project.  The theoretical aspect of the geophysical methods that can be used to characterize landfill will be presented (Electromagnetic induction, Magnetometry, Electrical resistivity tomography, Induced Polarization, Multi-channel analysis of surface waves, Ground penetrating radar, Horizontal to vertical spectral ratio of noise).  You will also learn the basics to interpret the geophysical data. In the afternoon, the final version of the ELIF (Enhanced Landfill Inventory Framework) and of the Decision Support Tools Cedalion and Orion will be shown. You will also have the possibility to test the tools on real cases studies.

Day 2 – 3rd of February 2021 – Site visit of Bertrix landfill and demonstration of geophysics 

(depending on the evolution of the constraints related to the covid 19 situation)


The second day will be dedicated to the visit of Bertrix landfill site (Wallonia), one of the RAWFILL project pilot sites. Demonstration of four geophysical techniques (Ground penetrating radar, electrical resistivity tomography, seismic refraction profiling and H/V measurements) will be organized on site.


10h00 – 10h15


10h15 – 10h30      

Bertrix landfill - Site visit

10h30 – 12h30

Demonstration of geophysics, University of Liège (Wallonia, Belgium)



The two training days are free of charge but the registration is mandatory. You have the possibility to either participate to the entire training session (two days) or only one day. Please register here before the 1st of February, 2021. A zoom link will be sent to the participants a few days prior the event. Note that due to the current sanitary crisis, the number of participants for the site visit is limited. The exact location of the landfill site will be sent afterwards to the participants one week prior the event. 


Please note that the event will be held in English.


We look forward to seeing you there !
