The National Geothermal Academy will be this year with a geoscience focus, with a Geothermal Resource Decision Workshop. The workshop will be held 18-22 June 2018 at the Great Basin Center for Geothermal Energy, University of Nevada Reno.

The U.S. National Geothermal Academy will be running again in 2018, this year with a geoscience focus:

Module 1: Geothermal Resource Decision Workshop.

Dates: 18-22nd June 2018 (Monday – Friday, 8:00 am – 5:00 pm)

Instructors: William Cumming, Nicholas Hinz, Bridget Ayling and others.

Location: Great Basin Center for Geothermal Energy, University of Nevada Reno.

This course is directed at teaching geoscience and engineering students and professionals how geothermal conceptual models are constructed and how they are used to support a resource decision assessment process. Participants will work in teams to complete exercises using real data from magmatically-heated, volcano-hosted geothermal systems, and, deep-circulation heated, fault- and sediment-hosted geothermal systems, to simulate the experience of professionals advising a geothermal developer in making high-value resource decisions. It is intended for outstanding undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals with strong backgrounds in geoscience, math, and/or engineering. All classes will be held at the University of Nevada, Reno’s Redfield campus in south Reno. International and USA applicants welcome.

Course cost:

  • Professionals: USD $1,800
  • Current studentsUSD $1,000
