Tracer testing in fractured reservoirs has long been limited by the availability of unique and unambiguous tracers. In this study, we introduce the concept of using thermophilic microorganisms and DNA barcoding techniques for fractured reservoir characterization. On the one hand, thermophilic microorganisms have the potential of thriving in the extreme environment of geothermal and oil reservoirs. On the other hand, even if the microbes lose the basic functions of life after passing through the… Expand
