Geothermal Energy: An Important Resource

Cover for Geothermal Energy: An Important Resource

Editors: Carolyn B. Dowling, Klaus Neumann, and Lee Florea

Geothermal energy is an important natural and renewable resource. This Special Paper is a compilation of current and timely investigations of the complementary tracks of geothermal energy-low-temperature ground-source geothermal and high-temperature hydrothermal systems. Included among these contributions are studies on the feasibility and viability of integrating geological modeling with system design, unconventional extraction of low-temperature geothermal energy in underground coal mines, district-wide ground-source heat pump systems, models that couple heat transfer with groundwater flow and/or stratigraphy, and enhanced geothermal systems. This volume will be of distinct interest to the geologic community, civil engineers, urban planners, and those interested in environmental sustainability.
