Despite intensive explorations by speleologists, karstic systems remain only partially described as many conduits are not accessible to humans. Paleokarsts are buried karstic systems with a significant reservoir potential but they are not easily identifiable on seismic images, which leads to a huge uncertainty on the network location and the conduit geometry. Thus, it becomes necessary to resort to stochastic simulation to better assess that uncertainty, one of the main approach being to reproduce the topology and geometry information already observed on known networks.

During this seminar, I will mostly do a general presentation of karsts and present future work prospects.
