Deadline for Yellowstone Geothermal Workshop is this Week

Sign-up for the GRC Workshop/Field Trip to Yellowstone National Park by midnight, Friday.

Davis, California, USA: The Geothermal Resources Council (GRC) is recommending early registration for the Yellowstone Geothermal Workshop from June 22-26. Some places are available which are sure to be filled by the deadline of June 12.


This year's GRC Workshop will include a fieldtrip of the major geologic features of Yellowstone Park, the first national park in the world and the site of the greatest concentration of geothermal features on the planet, and discussions of its volcanic history, geochemistry, and hydrology.

The trip will be led by Duncan Foley, Gene Suemnicht, and Joe Moore. Duncan Foley has led geologic and photographic tours of the park since the 1970's and is familiar with its features, moods and history. Gene Suemnicht and Joe Moore each have more than 30 years experience in geothermal systems worldwide.

In addition to Yellowstone National Park the trip will visit the 13 MW net capacity U.S. Geothermal Raft River geothermal power plant and the Raft River Enhanced Geothermal System (EGS) site where reservoir stimulation activities are being conducted.

In the National Park workshop attendees will see at first hand the geological and geothermal features of the Yellowstone super volcanic system including 300 plus geysers - more than half of all the geysers in the world and more than 10,000 thermal features comprised of brilliantly colored hot springs, bubbling mudpots, and steaming fumaroles.

The cost is $1,500 for GRC Members and $1,700 for non-members. More information and registration is available online at: www.geothermal.org.

Only 50 spaces are available so early registration is advised. The deadline is May 22.
