Session 6B: Monitoring and Characterizing Active Geothermal Systems

During the lifetime of a geothermal project, assessments are done in order to protect the environment and the investment, and to characterize the subsurface. In order to achieve these tasks, information is collected and analyzed from sources including aerial/satellite, surface, subsurface and drilling data.  During this session we will discuss various aspects of monitoring and characterizing a geothermal project during the production stage.
