Abstract

•A suite of Python scripts calculates change in gravity signals from geothermal reservoir model outputs.•Combining forward models with PEST allows semi-automated model calibration.•Gravity data is most sensitive to porosity, permeability, fracture volume and relative permeability.•Calibrating against gravity data highlights aspects of a reservoir model that may need refining conceptually.
