Geothermal energy represents around 30% of the produced electricity in Iceland with a cumulative capacity being equal to 755 MWe (Ragnarsson et al., 2020). In particular, the Theistareykir geothermal plant, which is located on the Mid-Atlantic ridge in North Iceland, produces 90 MWe using two turbines in operation since autumn 2017 and spring 2018, respectively. We will report on the hybrid micro-gravity monitoring and discuss how this technique will contribute to the sustainable management of...

The Eocene-Oligocene Transition in intra-continental basins: A perspective from the Upper Rhine Graben

Emile Simon , Hendrik Vogel & Mathieu Schuster
The Eocene-Oligocene Transition (EOT) marks a turning point from the Eocene greenhouse paleoclimate to near-modern icehouse conditions. This ~790 kyr long interval is associated with major shifts in geochemical and sedimentological proxies, biological extinctions, and evolutionary turnovers, in both the marine and continental realms. These various archives provide strong evidence for a rapid global cooling, an oceanic reorganization, and the onset of a continental-scale icesheet over Antarctica. The two main causes invoked for this climatic...
