Organized by SEG and the DGG Working Group Geothermal Energy

Technical Committee:
Emmanuel Gaucher, Sebastian Held, Jennifer Livermore, Whitney Trainor-Guitton

Workshop objectives:

  • to foster networks between both professional societie
  • to provide a venue for experts, practitioners, early-career scientists and students to exchange idea

    o Advanced methodologies: joint inversions, geostatistics, uncertainty quantification
  • Reservoir Development, Stimulation, and Monitoring
    o Geophysical monitoring techniques: passive seismic, time-lapse monitoring, 4D monitoring
    o Downhole measurements and logging
  • Geophysical Case Studies
    o Hydrothermal systems
    o Enhanced Geothermal System
    o Geothermal Storage
