There are many ways to be involved with deep geothermal heat research at Cornell University.
The Cornell Energy Systems Institute hosts weekly engineering seminars, supports energy related coursework, and is home to an energy club that all members of the Cornell community are eligible to join. All of these areas support research.
The Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences offers courses in sedimentology and geophysics that are integral to geothermal heat research.
Several faculty members are also involved with geothermal research. Feel free to reach out to them through email.
