Abstract

Based on a 3D geological model of the geology and structure of the northern Rhine Rift Valley a geothermal model has been developed. Systematic measurements of permeabilities and thermal conductivities of relevant geologic formations have been combined with in situ temperature measurements, hydrothermal upwelling zones, characteristics of geological faults and added to the geological model. The model is an important tool for the planning of geothermal power plants because it will allow the geothermal potential to be easily determined at an early stage of the planning phase.
