A low-cost geothermal prospecting method viable in flat areas



The paper proposes a geothermal prospecting method to delimit closed thermal anomalies by using simple chemical/physical parameters measured in a shallow unconfined aquifer, by chance found to be thermally anomalous. The paper also suggests how to make a hierarchy of thermal manifestations in a territory and if they are originated by a low enthalpy or a high enthalpy deep geothermal system, accordingly.
