A.Otarola (ESO), D.Hofstadt (ESO), S.J.E. Radford (NRAO), S. Sakamoto (NAOJ/NRO)


Keywords: seismicity, volcanism, geology, hidro-geology, resistivity

This document summarises previous studies of several physical parameters of the Chajnantor and Pampa La Bola sites: seismicity and volcanic hazard, geology, water availability, underground temperature fluctuations, and soil resistivity. Other parameters, such as the availability and quality of aggregates, the underground water supply potential, and the detailed characteristics of the weathering layer remains to be studied.
