GEOHEATis an annual geothermal international conference. The first conference GEOHEAT2017 was held in 2017. Twenty-seven papers of the scientists and professionals from 5 countries worldwide (Russia, Germany, New Zealand, Mexico and Taiwan) were presented in a plenary session. The attendants presented twelve scientific and educational institutions, three production companies and one business administration. There were more than 100 registered participants. Four scientific trips were carried out as a part of the conference. The representative of International Geothermal Association participated in the conference.
GoalsThe goals of the conference are to distribute scientific and industrial information concerning current state of geothermal science, technology and industry; to share knowledge and results in theory, methodology, technology and applications of geothermal science; to bring together scientists, researchers, engineers, students and managers interested in geothermal science; to promote geothermal innovations; provide a forum to exchange ideas on the exploration, development and use of geothermal resources; to encourage international communication and collaboration.
Topics for talks, posters, and panel discussions- Theoretical Issues of Geothermics and Heat Flow - Geothermal Resources in Extensional and Compressional Settings - Geosciences - Case Studies - Exploration 21 - Field Management - Electricity Generation - Drilling and Well Bore Flows - Reservoir Engineering and Numerical Simulation - EGS/HDR - Geology of Geothermal Fields - Geochemistry of Geothermal Fields - Thermal Properties of Geothermal Fields Rocks - Low Enthalpy Systems and Direct Use - Geothermal Heat Pumps - Geothermal Hydrogen - Magma Chambers - Economics.
Conference locationThe conference venue is in the Research Geotechnological Center of Far Eastern Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Russia. Kamchatka is a very unique region of Russia. It is a part of Pacific Ring of Fire (circum-Pacific orogenic belt) and it is washed by cold Okhotsk Sea, Bering Sea and the Pacific Ocean. Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky is the capital of Kamchatka peninsula. It is a sea-port and one of the most spectacular towns in the whole world. It is a land of hot springs and geysers, volcanoes and valleys with lush vegetation. Kamchatka is a zone of modern volcanism. It has about 30 active volcanoes, about 300 extinct and destroyed volcanoes, more than 2500 cones, a great number of cold mineral and thermal hot springs and geysers. The Mutnovsko-Gorely group is located about 80 km south of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky on the south side of Avacha Bay. Mutnovsky volcano has the one of the world's largest fumarole fields; and it is one of the most active volcanoes in Kamchatka. Mutnovsky Geothermal Power Station (GeoPP) was built at the foot of this volcano. Flora and fauna are very rich and unique. There are some giant species (up to 3-3.5 m) which grow on a rich volcanic soil. The fauna includes 170 species of birds and 60 species of mammals. Beside numerous rivers, waterfalls and lakes Kamchatka has enormous reserves of fresh water. Kamchatka’s rivers are a spawning place for one of the world largest populations of salmon. September in Kamchatka is a symphony of colour. It is a beneficial and exciting time to travel around the peninsula. In September there are no permanent fog, rain and slush. The weather is splendid, the temperature is comfortable. The Petropavlovsk Kamchatsky airport is about 20 km from city border in Yelizovo. Most visitors arrive here from Moscow, but there are flights via Vladivostok and Khabarovsk.
