Journal Article: Geothermal Exploration Of Hot Water Sources In The Carpathians Of Yugoslavia And Czechoslovakia

Abstract
There are many hot water sources in the Carpathian system in both Czechoslovak and Yugoslav territories. The paper deals with the methods used for detection of these sources for spa and power purposes, combining geothermal, geoelectric and gas-measuring results. The temperature measurements were accomplished with the use of the Czechoslovak geothermometer GT-1, which enables sensitive gradient measurements in shallow bore holes at the depth of approx. 0.9 and 1.4 meters. The field experience with this instrument is presented in the paper. In the localities shown, geological structure and the strike of the tectonic lines can be clearly seen. Many of the sources are however of a small capacity with temperatures under 70 deg. centigrade, but due to the suitable mineralisation they are appropriate for balneological purposes. The first results from Yugoslav localities Vranjska Banja and Sijarinska Banja give some hope of economic potential for power exploitation.
