This page includes publications, presentations, interviews, and exhibitions that are of interest to the geothermal R&D community at large.

  • September 2015, we presented a paper on the evolving geologic model of the Fallon FORGE area at the Geothermal Resources Council (GRC) Annual Meeting in Reno.
  • August and November 2015, we participated in interviews about the Fallon FORGE project for UNR’s Nevada Silver and Blue magazine, which is published quarterly by the UNR Alumni Association and is widely read by the UNR student body.
  • December 2015, LBNL exhibited at the American Geophysical Association (AGU) meeting in San Francisco, presenting several areas of active research at the lab, including the Fallon FORGE project, with a specific emphasis on future internships, post-doctoral appointments, and collaboration with academia and industry.
  • February 2016, paper presented at the annual Stanford Geothermal Workshop served to inform the geothermal R&D community about the progress made to date on the geologic model of the Fallon FORGE project area, and its relevance to future FORGE operations.
  • September 2017, Fallon FORGE team member Dr. Bridget Ayling made an invited presentation to the Department of Geological Sciences and Engineering at UNR specifically on the Fallon FORGE project, generating interest from students and faculty members.
  • October 2017, we shared the vision of the Fallon FORGE project with the geothermal research community during the GRC Annual Meeting and GEA Expo in Salt Lake City, where we presented updates on project progress (during the conference) and discussed the project with researchers and industry people at the Fallon FORGE booth (in the Expo).
  • At this year’s Stanford Workshop on Geothermal Reservoir Engineering, we are presenting three other papers on the Fallon FORGE project that will be of interest to the EGS research community:
    • Phase 2 Update for the Fallon FORGE Project Site (Ayling et al., 2018);
    • The Geologic and Structural Framework of the Fallon FORGE Site (Siler et al., 2018); and
    • Using Borehole Induced Structure Measurements at Fallon FORGE Combined with Numerical Modeling to Estimate In-Situ Stresses (Blanksma et al., 2018).
