[SCG58-01] Supercritical Geothermal Resources as a Function of Mass and Energy Transport in Subduction Zone
Keywords:geothermal, subduction zone, energy transport, supercritical
Hydrothermal experiments under supercritical conditions were performed by using tri-axial machine. Fracture cloud could be formed and permeability was enhanced in supercritical conditions.
