AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The heat transfer processes are illustrated together with the main geophysical techniques to survey the thermal structure of the shallow crust and characterise hydro-geothermal systems. Issues regarding both direct uses (distric heating) and electrical paower generation (high entalphy system) are addressed. A series of case studies of geothermal energy exploitation are illustrated. The course includes also several practical experiences both in the laboratory (geothermal modelling with analithical and numerical codes, measurements of thermophysical properties) and in the field.
