Dear colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention and invite you to consider submitting an abstract to the "Geothermal systems 2: Geophysical imaging and monitoring for resource exploration and susceptibility assessment" session of the EGU General Assembly 2023 to be held in person in Vienna, Austria and online from 23 to 28 April 2023.

Abstract submission guidelines:

Abstract submission deadline: 10 January 2023 at 13:00 CET.

Session details: ERE2.5
Accessible high-temperature geothermal reservoirs are found in scarce places on Earth, while intermediate and low-temperature resources can be found in numerous places. A broad understanding of geology, (deep-seated) heat sources, reservoirs, and fluid pathways is needed in order to increase access to geothermal energy. The financial effort of drilling boreholes for geothermal energy companies is much higher than for fuel-based energy companies. Therefore, tailoring geophysical techniques for geothermal exploration and subsurface characterisation is crucial nowadays.

This session focuses on the use of geophysical techniques (seismology, geodesy, geoelectric, electromagnetic, gravity, etc.) for imaging and monitoring geothermal resources of any type, such as high- and low- temperature hydrothermal systems, hot dry rocks, super-critical fluids, and magmatic systems. We also welcome studies that analyse the impacts of geothermal energy production (e.g. changes in stress, strain, permeability, and induced seismicity), monitoring the evolution of the reservoirs (e.g. pressure, heat, steam fraction, chemical signature, groundwater, and crust), and how the geothermal systems respond to external environmental perturbations (air temperature, barometric pressure, rainfall, and snowfall) as well as extreme natural events (earthquakes, drought, flood, etc).

We look forward to receiving your contributions and thank you for your attention.

Sincerely yours, Session Conveners,
