Heat flow Questionnaire

Beginning with the new term of the International Heat Flow Commission last summer, the IHFC decided at the IUGG in Montreal (minutes)to reorganize and relaunch the International Heat Flow Database. An essential part of it will be the restructuring and revision of the database and the development of a new heat-flow research data information system. Truly, this is ambiguous.

We think it is best to develop the functionality of the IHFC heat-flow data portal along the scientific needs of our community.

Please, share your past experience with the database and inform us on your requirements on a heat-flow data portal. Please let us know in particular about features, functionality and/or services that would be helpful for your work. With spending 5 minutes of your time, you can help us to get an overview of the demands and expectations.

Don’t miss the opportunity to be part in this process.

Please give us your feedback in the online questionnaire (surveymonkey).

We will summarize the results here at the IHFC website and during the Cermak7 meeting, where the collaborative revision of the available data will be initiated in a special workshop (http://cermak7.ihfc-iugg.org). If you wish to share your ideas prior to this event you are very welcome to give us a notice on that.

Update: Check out the results

Workshop on Thermal Conductivity, Chengdu, China

A two-day Workshop on Thermal Conductivity of Rocks was successfully held in Chengdu University of Technology, Chengdu, China, October 12-13, 2018. The workshop featured three lectures and one hand-on session instructed by Professor Yuri Popov (IHFC Chair 2011-2015): 1) New role of thermal petrophysics and geothermics in prospecting, exploration and development of unconventional and traditional hydrocarbon fields; 2) Methodology and results of experimental geothermic investigations of scientific deep and industrial wells (1990-2018); 3) Peculiarities of application of optical scanning techniques in geothermic and petrophysical experiments; and 4) Hands-on exercise and best practice with the Lippmann and Rauen GbR Thermal Conductivity Scanner. Shaopeng Huang (IHFC Chair) was the organizer of the workshop which attracted more than 60 participants.
