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.

Where do they come from? What are they made of? How can they be distinguished? What is their value? The subject as a whole has been treated from the mineralogical standpoint, as this affords the best basis for a thorough knowledge of gems.

Stylolites are ubiquitous geo-patterns observed in rocks in the upper crust, from geological reservoirs in sedimentary rocks to deformation zones, in folds, faults and shear zones. These rough surfaces play a major role in the dissolution of rocks...

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.
This book has a single purpose: to explain how it is even possible to reconstruct the history of the Earth from data available in the present. The emphasis is methodological: rather than explaining what is known, we shall look at how it is known.
