Abstract
    Upward seepage of saline groundwater leads to surface water salinization in deep polders in The Netherlands. As preferential saline seepage via boils is the dominant salinization process in the Dutch deep polders, we started a detailed monitoring program around three boils. Temperature measurements with a fiber optic cable were used to trace the preferential seepage flow paths. Temperature depth profiles around the boils were measured to evaluate flow velocities.
