Journal Article: An Integrated Geophysical Study Of The Geothermal Field Of Tule Chek, Bc, Mexico

Abstract
A method is described to determine bounds characterizing axisymmetric bodies from a set of gravity data. Bounds on the density contrast as a function of depth to the top and thickness of the anomalous source are obtained by using Parker's ideal body theory and linear programming algorithms. Such bounds are given in terms of trade-off diagrams, where regions of feasible solutions compatible with the observed data can be assured. Gravity data from the Tule Chek, B.C., Mexico, geothermal area were used to compute such trade-off diagrams. Seismic results were employed to constrain the gravity interpretation. An upper bound on the density contrast of 0.6 g/cm3 was estimated, which corresponds to a maximum depth to the top of the anomalous body of 1.75 km. A basement uplift or an intrusive structure may be the two possible sources of the observed data, according to the geophysical and geological evidence.
