Journal Article: Application Of The Sp Technique Over Lagadas Low Enthalpy Geothermal Field, Greece

Abstract
In order to verify the applicability of the SP gradient method as a tool for geothermal exploration, Lagadas low enthalpy geothermal field was used as a test site. A total of 63 line km was surveyed using the SP gradient method along 10 profiles covering the main geothermal field area. The compiled SP map correlates in a satisfactory way with other geological and geophysical information available. Detected SP anomalies were inverted to causative polarized planes and their relationship with existing deep fractures in the basement is investigated. As a result, two main fracture zones were detected, which were electrically polarized, and coincide with already known similar tectonic features identified by other geological and geophysical methods. Circulation of hot water in deep permeable fracture zones is considered to be the originating mechanism of the observed SP anomalies.
