Geophysical and Geotechnical Data Fusion for Levee Assessment - Interface Detection with Biased Geophysical Data

To prevent disastrous consequences imputed to levee breakage, assessment methodologies have to be improved. Geophysical and geotechnical investigation methods are usually used to make such assessments. However, the effective combination of these two specific types of data remains a challenge. We propose the fusion of geophysical and geotechnical data by means of Belief Functions. Here we demonstrate our approach on a synthetic case study including geophysical (electrical resistivity) and geotechnical (cone-bearing) data and by implementing Smets and PCR5 normalization rules. This new data combination approach allows the characterization of horizontal interfaces and of a geological structure initially hidden by the effects of a highly conductive body.
