The first hindrance in power costs used to be unquestionably a powerful stimulus for the involvement of the fee of the eu groups in learn and improvement on substitute strength resources. certainly, the necessity to conquer problems confronted through the neighborhood as a complete, rather these caused by its critically unbalanced strength offer, made a standard group method look particularly apt. This reasoning additionally applies to strength R&D, considering that responses to the obstacle might be not just political or monetary, but in addition clinical. 4 years have handed because the selection of the Council of Ministers to release the 1st neighborhood power examine and improvement Programme, facing geothermal power, solar power, hydrogen creation and utili­ sation, strength conservation and effort structures research. A seminar on geo­ thermal power was once held years in the past to document on paintings in development on the half-way level of the four-year programme. the second one overseas seminar, suggested during this quantity, used to be arrang­ ed to be able to provide a chance to check the ultimate final result of this group funding in learn in geothermal power. This complaints quantity consequently has major goals: - to give an overview of the result of the group geothermal programme, by way of eighty three formal reviews describing the person study programmes; - to teach how the group examine programme suits into the final context of nationwide and foreign study on geothermal power, through together with the shows of six visitor audio system who brought the classes and gave keynote addresses.

The symposium on Angiography/Scintigraphy delivered to Mainz within the fall of 1970 not just many ecu colleagues with an curiosity in those strategies, but additionally a few viewers from abroad. those busy, work-filled days are starting to fade within the reminiscence of these who have been there. however, the clinical effects stated on that social gathering nonetheless provide the tips for what's at the moment being performed in radiology and nuclear drugs.

TechnoLogicaL research into Low-temperature convectors, which wiLL be continued in the current programme, aLLows us to contempLate geothermaL heating of existing premises with water at 40°C - the substitution and operating costs are economicaL and no back-up boiLer or heat pump is required! This point is absoLuteLy vitaL if Low-temperature geothermaL energy is to have a future. THE GEOTHERMAL POSSIBILITIES OF HOT DRY ROCKS With this concept of geothermaL energy artificiaLLy derived from hot dry rocks (HDRs), we are deaLing with an area of geothermaL futuroLogy which has LatterLy become the subject of controversy and emotion.

The intention was that the target should be recognizable for drilling the following autumn. Geophysical prospecting is also being carried out on the slopes of Vesuvius to locate the top of a fractured limestone reservoir and this too will culminate in a drilling operation. Few methods can rival seismic reflection and, to a slightly lesser extent, direct-current electrical prospecting. With the exception of gravimetries and magnetism, most of the other methods are stiLL LargeLy experimentaL, especially the electro-magnetic ones which exploit naturaL sources such as magnetoteLLurics much favoured by our contractors.

Indeed this request poses the interesting question as to whether or not vulcanologists are entitled to forecast any implication of volcanic activity. I shall not here co~ ment any further on the 50uffriere case which emphasized the distinction to be established between collection of "physically contributing" data such as seismic events, velocities, temperatures, heat flows, gazeous rates, isotopic ratios, etc ••• and their interpretation which at least, in the present stage ought to be shared with those scientists experienced in volcanic exploration and events.
