Three scenarios for the behavior of the Basse-Terre geothermal reservoir, defined from the cross section extracted from the MT survey (a). The MT survey presents four elements, (1) a well-defined conductor horizon with a dome shape, (2) a deeper upflow, associated with the La Soufrière magma chamber, (3) a well-delimited resistive area at depth, interpreted as a potential heat reservoir, and (4) a resistive unit associated with the Bouillante reservoir. b The first scenario with heat sources under both Bouillante and La Soufrière. c The second model with a higher basal heat flux that supports vertical fluid fluxes. d The third model with a heat source only under La Soufrière and strong lateral fluid fluxes
