A monitoring program provides measurements of different parameters including pore water pressure in different locations of a tailing dam. These data are obtained in near-real time from a wireless sensor network and have to be used to assess the integrity of the dam. The information obtained from the raw data is often insufficient for decision making and has to be complemented by the knowledge provided by a model. The objective of the project is to design computational tools that assimilate in real time the data obtained into a computational model. This will allow enhancing the quality of the information at hand and make educated decisions on the control and maintenance of the dam. The computational strategy to be devised in based on the use of reduced order models and different tools for model updating.
