Subsurface Geology and Geothermal Potential of the Kavakl?dere Geothermal Field (Western Turkey)

Ozdemir A. | Sahinoglu A.


Abstract: The Kavakldere geothermal field which covers a 126 km2 area between Alaehir and Salihli districts in Manisa province, Turkey were studied. The various parameters connected to geological structure and the properties of geothermal systems in the field were measured. The important methods which are various electrical resistivity and thermal methods in geothermal exploration were applied in the field and also containing of geothermal fluids were usually characterized by low resistivity. VES applications AB/2 = 2500 m theoretical depth in 206 locations were applied. Measuring point range was taken between 250 m and 500 m. In addition to total 206 resistivity measurements were compared with previous studies and all measurements were re-evaluated with EarthImager 1D and RockWorks programs. VES curves, resistivity and stratigraphy cross-sections were re-prepared and re-interpreted. At the result of the those measurements, potential geothermal reservoirs were detected for determining the expected thermal activities at intersection points of the different orientioned faults mostly located at middle and north sides of the study area.
