The “Bedretto Underground Laboratory for Geoenergies” is currently in development; thus, not many scientific publications have appeared yet. Below, you will find a list of publications relating to the tunnel. As data will be acquired and publications written they will progressively be published below. The data sets which are made publicly available will also be published here.
