Exploration Activity: Airborne Electromagnetic Survey At Raft River Geothermal Area (1979)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Raft River Geothermal Area|
|Exploration Technique||Airborne Electromagnetic Survey|
To show that AEM methods can be useful in exploration for and defining geothermal systems
Extensive audio-magnetotelluric (AMT) work by the USGS in KGRA's showed that many geothermal systems do have a near-surface electrical signature which should be detectable by an AEM system.
