Exploration Activity: Field Mapping At Coso Geothermal Area (2001-2003)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Coso Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Field Mapping
Activity Date 2001 - 2003

Usefulness not indicated
DOE-funding Unknown

Exploration Basis
Determine structural control on permeability and fluid production
New multifold seismic reflection data from the Coso geothermal field in the central Coso Range, eastern California, image brittle faults and other structures in a zone of localized crustal extension between two major strike-slip faults. Production in the Coso field primarily occurs in the hanging walls of the listric faults.
