An Introduction to Thermogeology ground source heating and cooling is aimed primarily at professionals whose skill areas impinge on the emerging technology of ground source heating and cooling
He explains the science behind thermogeology and offers practical guidance on different design options
It equips engineers, geologists, architects, planners and regulators with the fundamental skills needed to manipulate the ground's huge capacity to store, supply and receive heat, and to implement technologies such as heat pumps to exploit that capacity for space heating and cooling
The author has geared the book towards understanding ground source heating and cooling from the ground side the geological aspects , rather than solely the building aspects
They will be aware of the importance of the technology and wish to rapidly acquire fundamental theoretical understanding and design skills
This second edition has been thoroughly updated and expanded to cover new technical developments and now includes end-of-chapter study questions to test the reader's understanding.
