Stanford Geothermal Workshop Wordcloud

Back home after the Standord Geothermal Workshop (SGW). Some highlights were catching up with Russell Roundtree (CSM geophysics grad) and signing on to help with the AGU-SEG geothermal workshop in summer 2025. Stay tuned for details.

Pulled out 45 SGW papers of particular interest to me and thought why not code up some python to scrape the text out of the pdf files then make a wordcloud? Might give a kind of ranked summary of the important topics in the papers I selected. About 350K words contributed to the word cloud below. Interesting relative occurrence of model versus data. Right now models dominate over data, but I suspect data will soon move up as more EGS projects come online and share data. Gotta love python!
