PB5003 Geological Exploration for Geothermal

This lecture introduces various methods of geology, geophysics and geochemistry used during exploration of geothermal or hydrothermal system.

  • Geology overviews various surveys used during geothermal exploration. Furthermore, it gives knowledge about alteration minerals, especially ones which are common in geothermal system.
  • Geophysical study overviews various surveys used during geothermal exploration. It gives knowledge how to compile geological condition and geophysics anomalies and physical properties of rock to understand subsurface structure or reservoir.
  • Geochemistry overviews various surveys used during geothermal exploration, type and distribution of geothermal fluids and interpretation of reservoir condition.
