ShallowTHERM – Characterisation of Shallow Geothermal Properties

Irish Ground Thermal Properties  website is dedicated to the dissemination of data & results from Research Projects on Irish ground conditions.

A series of  project supported by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) the Geological Survey Ireland (GSI)  started in 2015, have provided new data on ground thermal properties.

The ShallowTHERM project is currently funded by the 2019 SEAI RD&D programme and aims to progress the measurement and mapping of thermal conductivity of bedrock to a regional scale by using airborne Tellus Survey geophysical data using a work flow that integrated geophysical, geological and thermal conductivity data.

Three areas in the west of Ireland covered by the Tellus 2019 data set have been selected as test cases for testing the proposed ShallowTherm methdology.

for funding provided under grant number 19/RDD/443

for providing Core Store staff support and material for testing as part of the project.
