Geology, Geophysics and Geochemistry for Geothermal Exploration

Training Geology, Geophysics and Geochemistry for Geothermal Exploration

About the Course:
This course discusses 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.

The aim of the course is to give an understanding of the geothermal system and geological methods and their application to identify a geothermal area, including its surface manifestation, within a volcanic area. Another main subject of this course is to understand various minerals commonly occurring in geothermal system, its type of alteration and how to use it to understand the behavior of reservoir.
