Title: Efficiency of Geothermal Reservoirs

Abstract: An important future energy source is hot water from deep geological layers. But how much energy can be produced from a given geothermal reservoir? In this project we will seek to answer this question of efficiency of geothermal reservoirs by building realistic subsurface models, and simulating flow of hot water in the reservoir. A combination of fluid flow and heat transport/conduction will be a main theme. The project was carried out in collaboration with research partners of the Solid Earth and Computational Geoscience Group.
