Abiotic hydrogen generation from biotite-rich granite: A case study of the Soultz-sous-Forêts geothermal sites, France, published in Applied Geochemistry
EPOS TCS AH: An open data infrastructure for the study of anthropogenic hazards linked to georesource exploitation, published in Nature Scientific Data
On January 7th, the University of Strasbourg announced the selection of 15 laureates of the Initiative for Excellence's "Breaking Boundaries" programme. This programme, co-directed by the Université of Strasbourg, the CNRS, and Inserm, funds Interdisciplinary Thematic Institutes (ITI) that aim to promote research and training in an interdisciplinary university environment. Among the laureates is EOST's ITI Geosciences for the Energy Systems Transition: Exploiting Deep Groundwater (G-eau-TE), the evolution of the LabEx G-eau-thermie Profonde.
An interview with Carole Glaas, PhD candidate at IPGS and ÉS Géothermie
Since December 2017, Carole Glaas has been interested in the permeability of geothermal reservoirs to understand how they increase reservoir productivity. With a new, simple, fast, and economical method, she is able to characterise the alteration of granites in fracture zones. She is doing her thesis largely at ÉS, thanks to the CIFRE funding framework.
The LabEx welcomed two new PhD candidates this year - Kamel Drif and Qinglin Deng - who will be using numerical modelling and big-data approaches to characterise the evolution of deep geothermal reservoirs in Alsace.
On October 10, 2019, Coralie Aichholzer defended her thesis in geology, entitled "Stratigraphic, sedimentary and structural approach to characterize the cover-basement interface in the Rhine Graben”. It was directed Philippe Duringer (EOST, IPGS) and co-financed by the LabEx G-eau-thermie Profonde and the University of Strasbourg.
