geothermal energy | National Geographic Society
This session will be accessible online. However, it is not possible to use it as energy unless the underground areas are "hydrothermal. Many areas do not have all three of these components. Depending on the type of rock, this can be as shallow as 1 kilometer 0. High-pressure cold water is injected into the drilled space, which forces the rock to create new fractures, expand existing fractures, or dissolve.
This creates a reservoir of underground fluid. It warms a secondary fluid that has a low boiling point, which evaporates to steam and powers a turbine. The brine cools off, and cycles back down through the injection well to absorb underground heat again. In Basel, Switzerland, the injection process caused hundreds of tiny earthquakes that grew to more significant seismic activity even after the water injection was halted.
This led to the geothermal project being canceled in Geothermal Energy and the Environment Geothermal energy is a renewable resource. The Earth has been emitting heat for about 4. However, most wells that extract the heat will eventually cool, especially if heat is extracted more quickly than it is given time to replenish. Re-injecting water can sometimes help a cooling geothermal site last longer. Geothermal systems do not require enormous amounts of freshwater. In binary systems, water is only used as a heating agent, and is not exposed or evaporated. It can be recycled, used for other purposes, or released into the atmosphere as non- toxic steam.
However, if the geothermal fluid is not contained and recycled in a pipe, it can absorb harmful substances such as arsenic, boron, and fluoride. Advantages There are many advantages to using geothermal energy either directly or indirectly:. They can be used to heat, cool, or power individual homes, whole districts, or industrial processes. Geothermal Energy and People Geothermal energy exists in different forms all over the Earth by steam vents, lava, geysers, or simply dry heat , and there are different possibilities for extracting and using this heat.
In New Zealand, natural geysers and steam vents heat swimming pools, homes, greenhouses, and prawn farms. New Zealanders also use dry geothermal heat to dry timber and feedstock. Other countries, such as Iceland, have taken advantage of molten rock and magma resources from volcanic activity to provide heat for homes and buildings.
Iceland also relies on its natural geysers to melt snow, warm fisheries, and heat greenhouses. The United States generates the most amount of geothermal energy of any other country. Every year, the U. Industrial geothermal technologies have been concentrated in the western U. In , Nevada had 59 geothermal projects either operational or in development, followed by California with 31 projects, and Oregon with 16 projects.
The cost of geothermal energy technology has gone down in the last decade, and is becoming more economically possible for individuals and companies.

Balneotherapy Balneotherapy is the treatment of disease by spa watersusually bathing and drinking. The most famous balneotheraputic spa in the world, Iceland's Blue Lagoon, is not a natural hot spring. It is a manmade feature where water from a local geothermal power plant is pumped over a lava bed rich in silica and sulfur. These elements react with the warm water to create a bright blue lake with alleged healing properties. Ring of Geothermal Geothermal energy sources are often located on plate boundaries, where the Earths crust is constantly interacting with the hot mantle below.
The Pacifics so-called Ring of Fire and East Africas Rift Valley are volcanically active areas that hold enormous potential for geothermal power generation. The Fumaroles There are no geysers at The Geysers, one of the most productive geothermal plants in the world. The California facility sits on fumarolesvents in the Earths crust where steam and other gases not liquids escape from the Earths interior.
Since the three countries with the greatest capacity for geothermal energy use have included the United States, Indonesia, and the Philippines. Turkey and Kenya have been steadily building geothermal energy capacity as well. Native American usually does not include Eskimo or Hawaiian people. Elizabeth Morse Andrew Turgeon.

Most are located around the Pacific Ocean in what is commonly called the Ring of Fire. A volcano is defined as an opening in the Earth's crust through which lava, ash, and gases erupt. The term also includes the cone-shaped landform built by repeated eruptions over time. Teach your students about volcanoes with this collection of engaging material. In its common usage, the word heat refers to both thermal energy and its transfer from a warmer object to a cooler object.
Thermodynamics is a branch of physics that studies heat transfer between systems. This field has observed the laws of thermodynamics which define how heat, within a system, flows and does work. As heat moves from one object to the other, physical changes will take place: the balloon filled with gas will grow or shrink, the roadway will expand or contract, the electrical resistance in the circuit will increase or decrease, and these changes are predictable and can be measured.
Engineers and scientists take these laws into account when they design projects and experiments. Use these resources to learn more about thermodynamics. Skip to content Donate Account. Encyclopedic Entry Vocabulary. Advantages There are many advantages to using geothermal energy either directly or indirectly: Geothermal energy is renewable; it is not a fossil fuel that will be eventually used up.
The Earth is continuously radiating heat out from its core, and will continue to do so for billions of years. Some form of geothermal energy can be accessed and harvested anywhere in the world. Using geothermal energy is relatively clean. Most systems only emit water vapor, although some emit very small amounts of sulfur dioxide, nitrous oxides, and particulates. Geothermal power plants can last for decades and possibly centuries.
Geothermal power plants produce electricity or heat 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To produce a GWh a gigawatt hour, or one million kilowatts of energy for one hour, an enormous amount of energy , a geothermal plant uses the equivalent of about 1, square kilometers square miles of land. Geothermal energy systems are adaptable to many different conditions. Disadvantages Harvesting geothermal energy still poses many challenges: The process of injecting high-pressure streams of water into the Earth can result in minor seismic activity, or small earthquakes. This happens as the underground fractures collapse upon themselves.
This can lead to damaged pipelines, roadways, buildings, and natural drainage systems. Geothermal plants can release small amounts of greenhouse gases such as hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide. Water that flows through underground reservoirs can pick up trace amounts of toxic elements such as arsenic, mercury, and selenium. These harmful substances can be leaked to water sources if the geothermal system is not properly insulated. Although the process requires almost no fuel to run, the initial cost of installing geothermal technology is expensive.
