Description
Field Trip E15

The field trip will visit some geothermal locations in the vicinity of Munich. We will see a geothermal heat district supply, a geothermal power plant and a geothermal drill site location (depending on the actual project status). In the southern part of Germany geothermal conditions can be described as a hydrothermal sedimentary basin structure. The temperatures of the thermal water ranges from 80 °C north of Munich to >145 °C south of Munich, due to the fact that the depth of the carbonate reservoir at the bottom of the pre-orogenic Molasse-Basin increases towards the south. The geothermal gradient is in a normal range (±3 °C/100m). The discharges of the wells in some cases are >100 l/s and the mineralization of the water is extremely low (<1 g/l).
