Thermal Stimulation of the Rotokawa Andesite: A Laboratory Approach
(University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2014)
Thermal stimulation of geothermal wells is a production enhancement technique that is an attractive option to operators of geothermal fields as a way to enhance and revitalize well performance capabilities through injection ...
Using Surface Methods to Understand the Ohaaki Hydrothermal Field, New Zealand
(University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2010)
After water vapour, CO₂ is the most abundant gas associated with magmatic hydrothermal systems. The detection of anomalous soil temperature gradients, and/or a significant flux of magmatic volatiles, is commonly the only ...
Geological constraints on fluid flow at Whakaari volcano (White Island)
(University of Canterbury. Department of Geological Sciences, 2013)
This study assesses the geological constraints on fluid flow within the main crater of Whakaari volcano (White Island) which is located in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand. A review of the volcanological and morphological ...
Experimental Investigation of Gouges and Cataclasites, Alpine Fault, New Zealand
(University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2013)
The upper 8-12 km of the Alpine Fault, South Island, New Zealand, accommodates relative Australia-Pacific plate boundary motion through coseismic slip accompanying large-magnitude earthquakes. Earthquakes occur due to ...
