A lot can happen to water as it rises to the surface from deep underground. It can mix with groundwater, for example. This makes it difficult for scientists to estimate the temperature of a geothermal reservoir, which is an important step as they decide whether a site merits further exploration as a source of clean, renewable energy. Now, Berkeley Lab researchers have developed a new way to take a geothermal reservoir’s temperature. ...
