The Danish subsurface provides a large potential for the use of low-enthalpy geothermal heat and thereby to change the national district heating structure by providing a base load to the system. In the past decade, new exploration and research campaigns have been performed to remove geological, technical and commercial obstacles for a significant u...
Article
Lake Garda, the largest lake in Italy at the southern front of the central Alps, provides a unique opportunity to reconstruct Quaternary geological processes related to the interplay between deglaciation driven sedimentation and tectonic activity. In fact, the topographic depression presently occupied by the lake was site of a major glacial tongue...
Article
Full-text available
Understanding the thermal behaviour of non‐steady state subsurface geosystems, when temperature changes over time, requires knowledge on the speed of heat propagation and, thus, of the rock's thermal diffusivity as essential thermo‐physical parameter. Mixing models are commonly used to describe thermo‐physical properties of polymineralic rocks. A t...
Article
Geostatistical seismic rock physics amplitude-versus-angle (AVA) inversion allows the joint prediction of rock and fluid properties from seismic reflection data. In these seismic inversion methods, the model perturbation and update occur iteratively in the petrophysical domain. A facies-dependent pre-calibrated rock physics model is applied to the...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Accurate predictions of the spatial distribution of permeability in the subsurface is fundamental in reservoir characterization for several tasks (e.g., CO2 injection and storage monitoring or natural resources characterization). Nonetheless, modelling permeability is particularly challenging, due to its strong variability, spatial anisotropy and d...

We measure thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of sedimentary, metamorphic and magmatic rock samples at ambient conditions. These data can be used in geothermal subsurface models, for geothermal resources assessment as well as in the evaluation of geothermal reservoir performance.
