The Hengill geothermal reservoir. Evaluation of subsurface geologic data

3 participants: ÍSOR, Reykjavik University (RU) and University of Iceland.

Supported by GEORG, GEOthermal Research Group:
Coordinator at ÍSOR: Hjalti Franzson

The project aims at defining the character of the Hengill geothermal system with special emphasis on integrating the various geological and geophysical borehole data. This includes a 3D model of geological and hydrothermal alteration structures. The work is mainly done as part of MSc studies of seven students each of whom will in addition focus on specialized subjects which will add further to the characterization of the geothermal system.
