Geothermal Literature Review:
A review of previously documented knowledge about an area to compile the critical points of current knowledge known and develop an overall understanding of the area or topic of interest.

Introduction
A geothermal literature review is a very important first step in any geothermal exploration activity. Literature reviews are a staple for research in almost any exploration activity because it is important to know what has already been done and what the results were before beginning a new exploration activity. Literature reviews look at previous research, studies, observations, and history of a particular topic or area so that future research activities can benefit from past research.
 
Use in Geothermal Exploration
Geothermal literature reviews help improve exploration efforts because by knowing the history of what has already been done and what worked or didn’t work, new exploration efforts can be geared toward techniques that will work better or gain information that was previously unknown. Geothermal literature reviews can be specific to one topic of interest or all encompassing; for example when creating a geothermal heat flow map of the United States, reviews of all geothermal areas with temperature data had to be compiled from a large range of different sources. Literature reviews are often confined to one location of interest and all known information about a specific area is used in the review. This type of literature review could be important for companies who are interested in purchasing an area for development; they would want to know everything about the area to evaluate whether or not it would be a smart purchase. Literature reviews might be conducted for creating maps, building conceptual or numeric models, or developing the basis for an exploration, development, and business plan. There are countless examples of why a geothermal literature review would be useful and overall any new exploration activity or development should begin with a literature review so that decisions can be made based on all available information.

Data Access and Acquisition
A geothermal literature review relies on past data, not recording new data. The literature review should compile different data from multiple sources and studies into one comprehensive report.
