Topographic Features

List of topographic features commonly encountered in geothermal resource areas:
The North Brawley Geothermal Power Plant is located in the Imperial Valley, California, a broad valley with flat topographic features. http://www.pcl.com/Projects-that-Inspire/Pages/North-Brawley-Geothermal-Power-Plant.aspx#

Flat terrains are characterized by the absence of major topographic features. Flat topography is typically encountered in areas that have experienced minimal past or present tectonic activity, but may also be present as relatively flat valley floors in caldera depressions and rift zones.
