This volume comprises papers, each of which has been rewritten and updated to reflect the very latest knowledge, which were contributed to the Special Issue of the International Journal of Energy Research published in 1985. The contributors, all distinguished international figures in the field, review the progress made in all areas of geothermal energy over the past decade. The range of topics covered is wide, from the formation of geothermal resources and their physical and thermodynamic properties, through geophysics and geochemistry, to the practicalities of geothermal engineering. Each topic is explained in detail by a contributor having practical experience in the field. This book will be of interest to all researchers and engineers working in the field of geothermal energy, as well as those considering the use of this increasingly important source of energy.
