SEISMIC INVESTIGATIONS OF A GEOTHERMAL FIELD IN SOUTHERN TUSCANY, ITALY (2015)
The Monte Amiata region in the Southern Tuscany, Central Italy, describes a volcanic complex with great significance in terms of the regional fresh water supply, mining and geothermal power generation. Mainly for the latter purpose, the volcanic area of Mt. Amiata has been the subject of extensive geological and geophysical research. The results from these studies have led to successful
geothermal production in the Mt. Amiata region since the early 1960s. Today, the most important reservoirs in this area are the Bagnore and the Piancastagnaio fields which are both operated by Enel Green Power. In order to get a more detailed understanding of new and promising adjacent areas, five reflection seismic profiles were carried out. We have performed and tested different depth migration methods on those lines.
