Geothermal energy is the cleanest and the most reliable source of renewable energy when compared to other options like solar or wind. From lighting up 5 bulbs in Italy in 1904, electricity generation from geothermal energy sources has come a long way to a total capacity of 16,355 MW (0.5% of total) by the end of 2023, most of which coming from hydrothermal reservoirs. In order to accelerate the scaling of electricity generation, Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) in non-volcanic areas need to be developed. Creating these EGS requires enhancing the permeability of natural fractures through a process called hydraulic stimulation. A natural outcome of this process is microseismicity (usually Mw<2), but in a few occasions, there have been earthquakes of greater magnitude (e.g., Mw 3.4 and Mw 5.5 at Basel (Switzerland) and Pohang (Korea Republic), respectively) which were very disturbing and ended up with project cancellation. Hydraulic stimulation operations are usually designed making use of a scaling law which states that the maximum magnitude of induced earthquakes is linearly proportional to the total volume of water injected into the system. Our numerical studies on hydraulic stimulation in EGS show that the injection protocol has a stronger contribution to the maximum magnitude earthquake over the total volume of injected water.

Cuenta cuentos científico para peques: Celebramos Sant Jordi en la Biblioteca Municipal de Esporles




El lunes 22 a las 17 h, en colaboración con la biblioteca municipal de Esporles, realizaremos la lectura del cuento infantil "Posidonia, la dama de la mar", de Harold Jimenez Canizales. Este precioso libro ilustrado combina la fantasía literaria con los principios científicos de la conservación marina, transportando a los más pequeños a un viaje único en el que la complejidad de los impactos que afectan a la Posidonia oceanica, la curiosidad y el aprendizaje se entrelazan de manera positiva y encantadora. 

Al finalizar la lectura ¡continua la acción! Como ya es costumbre en la biblioteca, los más peques podrán desarrollar sus destrezas artísticas en el taller de manualidades relacionado con el cuento.
