In order to interpret and calibrate geophysical exploration data, it is essential to know the variety of physical rock properties under in situ reservoir conditions. Therefore, this document shall provide basic information and understanding of the physical rock properties at high temperature and pressure conditions in order to design and develop proper exploration methods and interpret the results in geothermal terms with an interdisciplinary approach. This document is organized as follows. In
more » ... hapter two we provide an overview of a new petrophysical database, compiled from existing literature data on rock physical properties. This part was prepared in collaboration with work package 6. The third chapter summarize the results of an extensive laboratory program to measure physical properties on rock samples from exhumed and active systems by laboratory investigations at temperatures up to 700°C. In chapter four, laboratory results are validated with in situ down-hole measurements of physical properties at virgin temperatures up to 340°C.
