Exploration Activity: Analytical Modeling At Lightning Dock Geothermal Area (Brook, Et Al., 1978)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Lightning Dock Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Analytical Modeling
Activity Date 1978

Usefulness useful
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Exploration Basis
 
Assessing the accessible energy in known resource areas
 
Notes
 
Geothermometers were used to estimate reservoir temperatures, thicknesses were assumed constant and down to a depth of 3km, a geothermal energy recovery factor was used, extractable thermal energy converted to available work and then available work converted to electricity, but available thermal energy was the primary reported result.
