PB5002 Volcanology and Geothermal System

This lecture discuss the role of volcano in relation with characteristic of geothermal system. The relations discussed in this topic include:

  • Tectonic setting and magmatism/volcanism that control the distribution of geothermal system and potency of heat source
  • Classification of volcano and the eruption process which forming the volcanic landform and the eruption product that responsible in the formation of reservoir rock and its permeability
  • Volcanostratigraphy (tephrastratigraphy) and surface mapping of volcanic eruption product for exploration of volcanic-hydrothermal system
