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.
