Mapping interaction between magmatic and hydrothermal system with fluid inclusion analysis

5 participants: ÍSOR, Landsvirkjun, USGS Denver USA, Ormat Technologies Reno USA and University of Iceland.

Supported by GEORG, GEOthermal Research Group: http://www.georg.hi.is/node/165
Coordinator at ÍSOR: Anette K. Mortensen.

Through analyses of hydrothermal alteration and chemical analysis of fluid inclusions (major, trace, gasses and isotopes) of cuttings from wells that have reached parts of a geothermal reservoir impacted by magmatic gasses the project seek to constrain the chemical processes and model the magmatic fluxes at the transition zone between the magmatic and hydrothermal system.
