Identifying the origin of groundwater and flow processes in complex landslides affecting black marls : insights from a hydrochemical survey


The Super-Sauze mudslide is a persistently active slow-moving landslide occuring in the black marl outcrops of the French South Alps. To look closer at the processes involved and especially to gain a better idea of the origin and pathways of the waters, a hydrochemical study was carried out from May 2003 to May 2004. Results showed that the groundwater chemistry could not be fully explained by rainfall recharge or simple water-matrix equilibrium. A contribution of saline waters coming from the bottom of a thrust sheet overhanging the landslide was required to get the observed high mineralization
