[SMP44-P04] Natural Analogue of Supercritical Geothermal Reservoir
Keywords:Supercritical fluid, Geothermal reservoir, Granite-Porphyry system
a natural analog. Quartz veins, hydrothermal breccia veins, and glassy veins are present in Neogene granitoids, Tohoku Japan.
The glassy veins formed at 500-550 C under lithostatic pressures, and then pressures dropped drastically. The solubility of
silica also dropped, and the quartz veins formed under hydrostatic pressures. Connections between the lithostatic and hydrostatic
pressure regimes were key to the formation of the hydrothermal breccia veins, and the granite?porphyry system provides useful
information for understanding supercritical geothermal reservoirs.
