Watson and Westaway (2020) (WW) quantified subsurface temperature variations caused by anthropogenic climate change and urban/industrial development in Glasgow, using temperature data from the Glasgow Geothermal Energy Research Field Site (GGERFS) well GGC-01 (at site G-10; Fig. 1), noting implications for the thermal physics of this site. Monaghan et al. (2021) (MMS) have queried points, noted in passing by WW, on other aspects: the GGERFS purpose, location, design, heat resource and cost.

MMS suggested that WW misunderstood the purpose of the GGERFS, mistaking it for a demonstrator site. However, WW described it as subsurface infrastructure to investigate the geothermics...
