This project is aimed at defining the character of the Hengill geothermal system with special emphasis on integrating the various geological and geophysical borehole data. This included a 3D model of geological and hydrothermal alteration structures, geochemistry of sub-surface rocks and thermal fluids, volcanology, seismicity, resistivity and gravity surveys. The work was mainly done as part of the MSc studies of six students each of whom additionally added
a focus on specialized subjects, which further broadened the characterization of the geothermal system.
The project established a much better view of the diverse character of the geothermal system at Hellisheiði, and gave a guideline to new methodology in the geothermal studies.
