Special Issue on Geothermal Energy and Utilization 

Call for Papers

Guest editor: Kewen Li
Geothermal energy is one of the most important modern renewable energies. It has many advantages over solar and wind systems. These advantages include: 1) unaffected by weather; 2) it is a base-load power; 3) it is stable and has high capacity factor over 90% in many cases; 4) it requires less land and has less ecological effect; 5) it has high thermal efficiency.
Significant achievements have been made in geothermal industry, including fundamental mechanisms and utilizations in many aspects. These scientific and technological advances have contributed to the growth of the geothermal industry and the improvement of the environment around the world.
In order to further facilitate the promotion of geothermal energy, the goal of this special issue is to collect part of the accomplishments and the contributions about basic heories, methodologies, and technologies relevant to the geosciences of discovering and developing geothermal energy. Therefore, we are pleased to invite papers in the following areas:
• Geology and geophysics
• Geochemistry
• Geothermal reservoir modeling: principles, methods and algorithms
• Heat flow studies
• Evaluation of geothermal resources
• Utilization of geothermal energy
• Hybrid of geothermal with other renewable energies
• Geosciences related to geothermal energy coproduced from oil and gas fields
• Others
The timeline for the special issue is the following:
• Paper submission before May 31st 2018
• Return of reviews to authors before 15 July 2018
• Submission of final papers deadline: 15 September 2018
• Publication in December 2018.

Special Issue: Data Science in Geosciences 

Call for Papers

Guest Editors:
Vasily Demyanov (Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, UK)
Erwan Gloaguen (INRS-ETE, Québec, Canada)
Mikhail Kanevski (University of Lausanne, Switzerland)
Modern geoscience is facing a step change in the view of the amounts of data to be processed in almost real time in modern day digital era. There are still large volumes of heritage monitoring data that encapsulate essential domain knowledge and is often underused especially while inferring uncertainty of Earth system behaviour. The challenge comes in the processing, integration and assimilation of big data sets consisting in a diversity of types and nature of
information. Emerging new field of data science, machine learning and data driven modelling attracts more and more attention across the geoscience audience.
The special issue aims to provide an overview of emerging data science links withgeoscience applications, including big data, challenging case studies in geosciences, adaptation
of data science tech to the domain content, comparative studies, etc. We are specifically looking for original contribution that are not limited to a somewhat mechanistic application of the existing data science technology but rather reveal new contextual scientific merit for the geoscience domain knowledge.
Main topics:
- Data science in Geosciences: new concepts, new tools
- Environmental data mining
- Big data in geoscience
- Machine learning in geosciences
- Visual analytics of geo- and environmental data
- Data driven prediction modelling
- Applications: geoscience data, environmental risks, natural hazards, other
- Paper submission before: October 31st, 2018
- Return of reviews to authors before: January 31st, 2019
- Submission of final papers deadline: March 31st
, 2019
- Publication in the Spring or Summer 2019
Submit papers on-line through the journal`s website
When submitting you must choose the SI: “Data Science in Geosciences”.
Submitted manuscripts must fully comply with the journal’s Instructions for Authors in preparing manuscripts.
