Uncertainty Quantification for Geothermal Basin- and Reservoir-Scale Applications

Denise Degen, Mauro Cacace, Magdalena Scheck-Wenderoth, Karen Veroy & Florian Wellmann
Numerical simulations of the governing geophysical processes are crucial for geothermal applications in order to characterize the subsurface. This characterization presents us with major challenges ranging from the correct physical and geometrical characterization to the quantification of uncertainties. Quantifying rock physics uncertainties and performing other probabilistic inverse methods is, even with current state-of-the-art finite element solver and high-performance infrastructures, computationally not feasible for complex basin- and reservoir-scale geothermal applications due to the large spatial, temporal,...
