Detailed Site Description:
The Poitiers Experimental Hydrogeological Site (SEH) was developed by the Hydrasa team (FRE 3114) as part of the Network of National Hydrogeological Sites (SNO H+), under the Poitou-Charentes Region’s “WATER” program (CPER 2002-2006). Located 2 km east of the Science Campus of the University of Poitiers, the SEH occupies an area of 12 hectares on land belonging to the University (Deffend Site: Regional Plant Heritage Botanic Garden). From the geologic viewpoint the SEH occupies the north flank of the “Seuil du Poitou”, a huge Mesozoic carbonate plateau marking the transition between the Aquitaine and Paris sedimentary basins.
