Geothermal energy offers unique possibilities to support the sustainable progress of the economy of Developing and Least Developed Countries (DC/LDC) through the extensive utilization of a Renewable Energy Source. Its peculiar characteristics make it particularly appealing as a renewable, stable, reliable, cost-effective and environmentally benign solution for the energy challenge of the third millennium.
Exploration focuses on the initial phase of any geothermal project, namely the identification and assessment of resources by means of integrated geological, remote sensing, geochemical and geophysical methods.
The School aims at providing advanced knowledge of geothermal exploration methods with specific reference to the following topics:
➢ Geothermal energy resources distribution with specific reference to geologic and tectonic framework;
➢ Geological surveying methods through lectures, tutorials and case studies/histories;
➢ Remote sensing methods for geothermal exploration: lectures, case histories and laboratory sessions;
➢ Geochemical methods in geothermal exploration: lectures, case histories and laboratory sessions;
➢ Geophysical methods in geothermal exploration; lectures, case studies and laboratory sessions.
The School is based on lectures by distinguished experts and includes panel discussions, poster presentations.
