Exploration Activity: 2-M Probe At Dead Horse Wells Area (Kratt, Et Al., 2010)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Dead Horse Wells Area|

Background temperatures between 14.7°C and 17.7°C were encountered in the playa and are likely influenced by near-surface groundwater, as evidenced by abundant greasewood. In comparison, what we interpret as background, or near-background temperatures in the alluvial fan environment averaged about 20°C. The2-meter anomaly is characterized by temperatures up to 37°C (99°F) measured over a distance of more than 1.5 km. Lower, yet still anomalous, temperatures extend for a total distance of 5.5 km. The long axis of this thermal anomaly is oriented in an east-northeast direction and is at least 2 km wide.
