Description

Cornell University proposes to drill an exploratory geothermal energy borehole to a depth in the range of 4 - 5 km, which will penetrate nearly 3 km of Paleozoic sedimentary rocks and ? 1 km of amphibolite-grade Grenville metamorphic rocks, in central New York state, United States. The vision is that this borehole should be a scientific opportunity to gain understanding of how heterogeneous mid- to high-grade metamorphic rocks and low porosity sedimentary rocks respond to pore pressure manipulation.
