Modelling the Geothermal Potential of the Eastern Border of the Leinetal Graben, Lower Saxony

Tanner, David; Albero, France; Leiss, Bernd


We analyse the present-day geothermal situation of the eastern border of the Leinetal Graben near Sudheim using a twodimensional, finite-element model based on a cross-section made by Grupe (1909). The resulting thermal field shows discrete, but important differences in the geothermal gradient in- and outside the graben.
