Webinar – Solute Geothermometry – Applications and Development, Jan 13, 2023
As part of the regular IGC Webinar series – a partnership of Enerchange and ThinkGeoEnergy – we are proud to host Lars Yström, from the Institute of Applied Geosciences of the KIT, who will provide detailed information on his current research on solute geothermometry for geothermal exploration and development.
After the presentation you will have the opportunity to discuss and ask further questions.

Since early 2019, Lars Yström works as an academic assistant and PhD student at the Institute of Applied Geosciences of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Thereby, he is part of the department of geothermal and reservoir technology with a main focus on geothermometry and geochemical exploration. Part of his current research is also the development of highly innovative softwares, such as the “MulT predict”, a multicomponent geothermometer, and the artificial neural geothermometer.
Geothermometry constitutes an important geochemical tool for reservoir temperature determination. Thereby, temperature estimations are applied for exploration and development purposes of geothermal resources within the subsurface. In solute geothermometry, the geochemical composition of the geothermal fluid represents the temperature-dependent equilibrium state between the reservoir and fluid. Saturation of mineral phases as well as cation rations reflect the thermal conditions at depth and therefore infer the reservoir temperature.
