composition of rocks belonging to the main geological formations of the UmbriaMarche stratigraphic succession are presented. We carried out measurements of thermal conductivity, porosity, and density. The samples were mineralogically characterized by means of powder X-ray diffraction and by calcimetry. Scanning electron microscope analyses were conducted to ascertain the absence of mineralized veins, which could have biased the mineralogical composition. A mixing model was also applied to infer the thermal conductivity. The results can be useful to characterize the behavior of shallow geothermal systems in the study region.
