Towards a sediment budget of Permo-Triassic successions in the Central European Basin - implications for terrestrial perturbations around the Permian-Triassic Boundary (PTB)

Maryam Mansouri & Matthias Hinderer
Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany

For the first time, we quantified the erosional pulse around the Permian-Triassic Boundary (PTB) over an entire sedimentary basin. Our GIS-based analysis relies on basin-wide homogenized seismic, sedimentary and stratigraphic data of the Petroleum Geological Atlas of the Southern Permian Basin. We calculated sediment volumes, sediment fluxes and sedimentation rates (SR) averaged over the entire basin from isopach maps of the Rotliegend, the Zechstein, the Lower, Middle and Upper...

Deep geothermal potentials of Hesse as derived from geological 3D models and thermo-hydraulic simulations

Geothermal power plants require reservoirs of high temperature, high flow rates and sustainable recharge. Typically, there is a trade-off between increasing temperatures and decreasing fluid availability (due to pore space limitations) with depth. Predictions of the working conditions in reservoir formations at greater depth are challenging due to uncertainties in the underlying geology and because of the complex interaction of heat and fluid...

How scarce is our water? An analysis of the present and future world water situation

Randolf Rausch
Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany

If you look at the media, you come across new horror stories about water almost every day. Experts warn of a life-threatening global water crisis. Reports of droughts, wars for water, poisoned water and the end of our water resources are fuelling fears to die of thirst or of running out of water. How realistic is this news? Is this the truth or is this information the typical hype...
