Russia: Geothermal Volcanology Workshop in Kamchatka

Geothermal Volcanology Workshop 2020 (Institute of Volcanology and Seismology)

 5-9 September, Petropavlovsk, Kamchatsky, Russia.

Kamchatka is an active volcanic, seismic and hydrothermal region. Active volcanism is accompanied by magma injections into host structures, magmatic fracturing, and the formation of hydrothermal systems adjacent to volcanoes.

Geo-scientific and engineering studies of productive geothermal reservoirs are a necessary condition for their effective use for heat and power supply, and for balneological use. Geomechanical analysis of the magmatic fracturing regime with seismic data is extremely important for predicting volcanic, magma-hydrothermal activity, and strong earthquakes forecasts, and for understanding producing geothermal reservoirs and hard-to-recover hydrocarbon formation conditions.

The interdisciplinary focus and unique place of this workshop and field trips are stimulating breakthrough ideas, international scientific-technical cooperation, and multiple applications in Earth Science.
