Implementation of the new DFO monitoring system in a real levee on the Rhône river


The new DFO monitoring system is implemented and installed during the construction of a real levee on the Rhône river. In particular, the phenomena of erosion and scouring of the river bed and the interchange of river and groundwater flows are examined with the aid of the new measuring system.
