Task 1.4: Geo-data infrastructure and analysis

All variants of geothermal energy exploitation profit from an efficient access to available data such as bore hole characteristics, seismic data, etc.

The technical infrastructure to facilitate such an exchange is being developed within task 1.4 in close collaboration with swisstopo.

Current Projects

Past Project

GeoMol

3D structural model of the Swiss Molasse Basin with 12 geological horizons and simplified major fault zones. The model is based on subsurface data (seismics and wells) as well as surface geology.
