Notes
On a more local scale, Faulds et al. (2003, 2005a, 2005b, 2006) have conducted structural analysis and detailed geologic mapping at a number of sites throughout Nevada and have found that productive geothermal systems typically occur in one of several structural settings, including step-overs in normal fault zones, near the ends of major normal faults where the faults break into multiple splays, in belts of overlapping faults, at fault intersections, and in small pull aparts along strike-slip faults.
