HYDRORIFT is a subproject of the French GEOFLUX which develops cooperation between French and Icelandic groups of scientists to study seismicity and its relation to geothermal activity on the eastern part of the Reykjanes Peninsula in SW Iceland. The Icelandic group consists of specialists from Iceland GeoSurvey (ÍSOR) and HS Orka hf. The French group consists of specialists from the University of Le Mans-Nantes (CNRS) and Ecole et Observatorie des Sciences de la Terre (EOST). HYDRORIFT is a geophysical experiment on the Reykjanes Peninsula in Iceland including both high- resolution TEM/MT studies and seismic tomography. The study follows a successful five-month seismic experiment in the same area (Geoffroy and Dorbath, 2008). The objective is to stress the significance of the velocity anomalies discovered in the area, following the 2005 experiment (notably beneath Kleifarvatn Lake) and to reach a more accurate physical knowledge of the geometry and time evolution of the different fluid reservoirs within the active rift zone in Iceland.
