Abstract : Numerous long tunnels have been and will be drilled at a large depth in mountainous massifs.
The monitoring of water inflows temperature in five long alpine tunnels Vereina, Gothard-N2, Mont-Blanc, Simplon et Gothard-AT shows that the water temperature in underground works is strongly dependent on massif permeability and groundwater flows.
Cold waters coming from high infiltration zones have a refrigerating effect on the massif.
Thus, measuring water temperature during drilling constitutes an efficient and cheap predicting tool of water inflows.
These inflows can be localisated inducing a local decrease of temperatures in the massif, or they can be diffuse and induce a global decrease of the water thermal gradient in the massif.
A negative correlation between the water thermal gradient in each studied massif and the intensity of water inflows observed later in the tunnels intersecting them has been shown.
