To establish a geothermal power plant, the exploration of the potential reservoir is a indispensible step at an early stage. For this purpose we use and develop various indirect and direct methods.
Sustainable use strategies are the basis for the optimal exploitation of geothermal resources, and a good understanding of the reservoir is a prerequisite for geothermal storage concepts.
Geothermal fluids form a chemical equilibrium with the reservoir rock. What changes can be observed in the geothermal system during circulation?
We use numerical methods to understand and influence the effects of coupled processes on the geothermal reservoir and the physical and chemical processes.
