Abstract

There are more than 500 geothermal areas in the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt of central Mexico. Of these, two are presently object of a transnational project between EU and Mexico (GEMex): Acoculco (Canet et al., 2015), where there is already a commercial exploitation, and Los Humeros (Portugal et al., 2002), not developed yet. The GEMex project aims to improve the resource assessment and the reservoir characterization using novel geophysical (Griffith at al., 2015; Guglielmetti et al, 2013) and geological (Cilona et al., 2012; Liotta et al., 2015) methods and interpretations.
