Etat des connaissances hydrogéologiques et spéléonautiques sur les rivières souterraines sous-marines de Port Miou et du Bestouan (Cassis, France).

Abstract : Port Miou and Bestouan springs (Cassis, France) are the outlet of the longest submarine rivers explored in Europe. They are exceptional sites on the one hand for scientific studies on water resources in coastal karst area, and secondly for cave-diving exploration. They flow out at sea, a few meters deep and one kilometer away from each other in the bay of Cassis (Bouches-du-Rhone, France). Vertical location by positioning electromagnetic transmitter was done at the Bestouan subaquatic conduit up to 1850 m from the sea. Measurements of water salinity and temperature during the cave-diving exploration give new data in addition of the continuous monitoring of the springs, to characterize the groundwater flows subject to saltwater intrusion.
