GeotIS-Verbundmodell des Top-Malm im Bereich des nördlichen Vorlandbeckens der Alpen
Abstract: We present a structural 3D model of the top of the Upper Jurassic (Malm) aquifer beneath the Southern German and Upper Austrian Molasse Basin. The karstified or fissured carbonate rocks of the Upper Jurassic have a high geothermal potential and many geothermal facilities utilise successfully the geothermal energy by tapping hot water from this deep aquifer. The model is an assemblage of three models which have been stitched together. All parts have been setup by apply- ing modern 3D modelling software. The final model has been blended with a 3D subsurface temperature model. It is now part of the geothermal information system GeotIS which is run by the Leibniz Institute for Applied Geophysics and can be accessed via the Internet. This way it can provide a basis for further geothermal project planning in Southern Germany and Upper Austria.

- Zeitschrift der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Geowissenschaften (ZDGG) is an international peer reviewed journal that accepts papers on research and applied topics in the Earth Sciences. It is published online and in print. One volume, consisting of four issues is published annually. The journal has been published by the German Geological Society since its foundation in 1848. It was relaunched in 2005.
ZDGG invites the submission of English, German and French language papers from all fields of geology, hydrogeology, paleontology, tectonics, sedimentology, engineering geology and of course environmental geology to name a few. The editors of ZDGG also invite suggestions for thematic issues.
Please note that ZDGG issues from Volume 170 are now available from the publisher's website at https://www.schweizerbart.de/journals/zdgg
