Exploration Activity: Field Mapping At Coso Geothermal Area (1999)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Coso Geothermal Area|
|Exploration Technique||Field Mapping|
Develop an understanding of the sedimentology and stratigraphy of well-exposed Cenozoic sedimentary strata
A detailed sedimentation and tectonics study of the Coso Formation was undertaken to provide a more complete picture of the development of the Basin and Range province in this area. Detailed mapping and depositional analysis distinguishes separate northern and southern depocenters, each with its own accommodation and depositional history.
