The CENARIS

About Cenaris

The research, expertise and alert center dedicated to the observation and monitoring of soil and subsoil risks

History and missions

The National Center for Ground and Underground Risk Management (Cenaris), created in 2006 by Ineris and hosted by Mines Nancy, is a research, expertise and monitoring center dedicated to observation and monitoring of ground and underground risks.

Its mission is to develop and implement tools and methods to improve the understanding of physical processes linked to instabilities and disasters, to enhance forecasting capabilities as well as expertise applied to risk management.

Organization

Cenaris manages observation and monitoring systems in France and in Europe.

It is structured around a team of experts and a technical management team and relies mainly on the skills and resources of the Soil and Subsoil Risk Division.


Main areas of intervention:

  • mines, quarries and underground cavities,
  • rocky fronts, natural slopes and faults,
  • structures, dams and dikes,
  • geological storages and underground tanks.

Monitoring solutions

The e.cenaris cloud monitoring infrastructure

The e.cenaris infrastructure provides a high level of integration of tools for data acquisition, management, analysis It enables to provide the most efficient solution for each monitoring project.

It comprises:
multi-parameter systems that allows to measure relevant variables with various natures (seismic, microseismic, geotechnical, geodesic, hydrological, meteorological, and gas measurement),
tools for the automatic management, in near real-time, of multi-parameter databases interfaced with software for remote management, processing and scientific analysis as well as alarm management,
a secure web-monitoring site for easy and shared access with all project stakeholders, data, metadata and associated results.
Note that the e.cenaris infrastructure can be used as a collector and centralized data manager with any telemetry system already in place.
