Course description

Sedimentary, Mantle and Magmatic Geothermal Systems

This course investigates sedimentary, mantle and magmatic geothermal systems. These represent some of the sources of thermal energy in Earth's subsurface, each one is influenced by the plate tectonic setting, the nature of the heat source and the dominant transfer mechanism. Case studies and exercises illustrate and assess the different systems in different regions. The lectures are designed to improve the basic understanding of geothermal systems, their environments and development.

Suitability - Who should attend?

The course is intended for individuals working in and/or interested in working on geothermal projects.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

  • Understand aspects of geothermal systems.
  • Understand the geothermal play system concept.
  • Take data about an area and formulate a hypothesis about the geothermal system.
  • Ask the right/impactful questions about geothermal systems during project development.
  • Assess exploration methods in different geothermal plays.
