Water-Rock-Microbial Interactions in the hydrothermal spring of Puertecitos, Baja California, Mexico
The interaction of microorganisms with minerals under high temperature hydrothermal systems is a little studied process. This study was conducted in the hydrothermal spring at Puertecitos, Baja California, Mexico, formed ...
Unraveling the dynamics of magmatic CO2 degassing at Mammoth Mountain, California
The accumulation of magmatic CO2 beneath low-permeability barriers may lead to the formation of CO2-rich gas reservoirs within volcanic systems. Such accumulation is often evidenced by high surface CO2 emissions that ...
Numerical modeling of cold magmatic CO2 flux measurements for the exploration of hidden geothermal systems
(AGU PUBLICATIONS, 2015)
The most accepted conceptual model to explain surface degassing of cold magmatic CO2 in volcanic‐geothermal systems involves the presence of a gas reservoir. In this study, numerical simulations using the TOUGH2‐ECO2N V2.0 ...
Fluid geochemistry and soil gas fluxes (CO2–CH4–H2S) at a promissory Hot Dry Rock Geothermal System: The Acoculco caldera, Mexico
The Acoculco caldera has been recognized by the Mexican Federal Electricity Company (CFE) as a Hot Dry Rock Geothermal System (HDR) and could be a potential candidate for developing an Enhanced Geothermal System (EGS). ...
The Acoculco Caldera Complex magmas: Genesis, evolution and relation with the Acoculco geothermal system
The Acoculco Caldera Complex (ACC) is located in the eastern part of the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt, México. The ACC was formed 2.7 Ma, and since then, volcanic activity has persisted until 0.06 Ma, through the emission ...
Evidence of a shallow magma reservoir below Los Humeros volcanic complex: Insights from the geochemistry of silicate melt inclusions
Los Humeros volcanic complex (Eastern Trans Mexican Volcanic belt) is one of the three most important geothermal fields in Mexico and is currently producing electricity (ca. 90 MW). It is therefore pertinent to constrain ...
