Journal Article: The Geophysical Exploration Of Geothermal Reservoirs- The Travale Test Site (Italy)

Abstract
Geothermal reservoirs are usually tied to geological structures that are not easily explored by one geophysical method only. The combined application of several different techniques seems to be the most promising strategy. The development of the best combination of methods, comparison of the available instruments, and a number of processing and interpretation techniques have to be tested on a well-studied geothermal reservoir. The Travale geothermal field (Tuscany, Italy) is a high enthalpy hydrothermal system with single phase (vapour or liquid) or two-phase conditions, dominating in different parts of the reservoir. This field was chosen as a test site for geophysicists of the EEC member states. Since 1980 electrical, electromagnetic, magnetic and seismic exploration techniques have been tested in cooperation with ENEL, the Italian Electricity Agency, under the sponsorship of the Community.
