Thermo-Sensitive Tracers For Investigating The Temperatures In Geothermal Reservoirs

With the depletion of fossil fuels, geothermal has been gradually entering the field of view on renewable energy in the past decades. A crucial aspect of successful geothermal development mostly depends on site characteristics (Lu, 2018). Tracer tests provide important insights into system characterization, assisting sustainable geothermal reservoir research and management. One of the most common and useful applications of tracer testing in geothermal is to evaluate and monitor the cooling of the reservoir due to reinjection during the operation....
