Journal Article: Temperature Inversions In Geothermal Systems

Temperature inversions have been observed in deep boreholes in a number of geothermal areas. An elementary investigation indicates that the observed inversions may be manifestations of temperature disequilibria around fractures or permeable horizons where the thermal or flow conditions have changed recently. In particular, the permeable structures may recently have been invaded by thermal waters. Two cases from Iceland are discussed in some detail.
