Exploration Activity: Conceptual Model At Raft River Geothermal Area (1979)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Raft River Geothermal Area|
|Exploration Technique||Conceptual Model|
Recommendations are made concerning field expansion and additional work needed to refine the overall reservoir model.
Models described in this report show the source of various minerals in the geothermal water. There appears to be a regional heat source that gives rise to uniform conductive heat flow in the region, but convective flow is concentrated near the upwelling in the Crook well vicinity.
