Abstract

This study examines the possible applications of optical fibres to the measurement of temperatures and pressure at depth in high enthalpy geothermal borings. The study is in two parts. The first part reviews principles, describes optical fibre cables and sensors and lists currently available products. The second part concerns the feasibility of using transmission by means of optical fibres in geothermal application. Finally, suggestions are made for a development programme of optical measuring equipment suitable for measurements at the bottom of deep wells.
