Geographic Information System At Nevada Test And Training Range Area (Sabin, Et Al., 2004)
Exploration Activity: Geographic Information System At Nevada Test And Training Range Area (Sabin, Et Al., 2004)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Nevada Test And Training Range Area|
|Exploration Technique||Geographic Information System|
Nellis Air Force Range (NAFR) occupies over 3 million acres in southern Nevada (Figure 1). We recently assessed potential utility-grade geothermal resources and possible target areas for exploration by constructing a GIS of this area and applying the occurrence model ideas outlined above (ITSI, 2003; Sabin et al., 2004). We list below many of the factors considered. Because of the lack of voluminous young volcanic activity within the area, other factors such as neotectonics and structural configurations are especially important to consider.
