PB5007 Geochemistry for Geothermal Exploration

This course covers all aspects of chemistry at explration of geothermal systems. It explains type, composition, source and distribution of geothermal fluids; and the effects of boiling, mixing and condensation to the composition of water. How to understanding of the reservoir condition is then given, followed by the behaviour of gas dan stable isotope in geothermal systems.

The course will also point out exploration using soil geochemistry and assesment of scaling formation dan corosivity in production pipes.
