Description:
Multiphase reactive transport in complex fractured systems are relevant in geothermal engineering. Topics of interest include multicomponent, multiphase heat and mass transfer in geothermal systems, fracture characterization using reactive and non-reactive tracers, coupling surface and sub-surface systems and stimulation of geothermal reservoirs.
