A new hydrogeophysical methodology to monitor shallow geothermal systems

The Postdoc project of Thomas Hermans is starting today. The aim of the project is to develop a new hydrogeophysical methodology to monitor shallow geothermal systems using electrical resistivity tomography.

It involves laboratory measurements to analyze the effect of temperature on electrical resistivity, including physico-chemical reactions such as carbonate precipitation. The project also includes field experiments such heat tracing, heat injection and storage or heat injection and recovery experiments.

To have more information on the use of geophysical methods to monitor temperature in the subsurface see this review or this paper.
