Abstract

The studied area is attributed to the geological and stratigraphic unit of the Anthemounda basin. According to field work and existing data, the morphology, topographic relief and hydrographic system are described; the basement, Neogene and Quaternary formations are geologically examined, the hydrogeology, tectonics and faults and displacements attributed to Pliocene Pleistocene are also studied. In the chapter: Geothermy + Interpretation of the Results, reference is made to surface heat manifestations, field sampling, geochemistry, geophysics, drilling exploration and temperature examination as well as determination of the thermal heat flow. As a result of the evaluation of temperatures in the drill holes and the isotherm contour map the calculated geothermal gradient in the studied area was found to be almost equal to the average crustal geothermal gradient. Significant geothermal anomaly and aquifers being found missing, we may conclude that the geothermal interest of the area is minor.
