Volcanology and Geothermal Energy
by Kenneth Wohletz, Grant Heiken
Publisher: University of California Press 1992
Number of pages: 450
Bridging the gap between academic geologists and drilling engineers, Volcanology and Geothermal Energy is a practical and thorough guide to planning and operating a successful exploration project. It describes the potential geothermal reservoirs associated with volcanoes and volcanic regions and uses recent advances in volcanology to offer many examples of how geological field data give evidence of the location, nature, and size of a geothermal resource.

This book is devoted to the sedimentary basin formation on active plate margins, which show enormous diversity reflecting complex tectonic processes. Multidisciplinary approach is based on geology, sedimentology, geochronology and geophysics.

Glaciers have always played an important role in history, and currently, they are observed as climate change sentinels. Glacier melt rate is increasing, and its mass balance is continuously negative. This issue deserves accurate and in-depth studies.
