Exploration Activity: Geographic Information System At Northern Basin & Range Region (Blewitt, Et Al., 2003)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Northern Basin and Range Geothermal Region
Exploration Technique Geographic Information System
Activity Date

Usefulness useful regional reconnaissance
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Notes
On the regional scale, we investigated the spatial relationship of known geothermal activity with: (1) the regional tendency of Quaternary fault orientations; (2) the direction of extensional strain; and (3) the magnitudoef fault-normal extensional strain. Item (1) is purely a structural analysis based on documented Quatemary faulting. Item (2) is purely an empirical strain-rate analysis, based on GPS station velocity data. Item (3) is a combined analysis of both structure and strain-rate. Using observed relationshops as a guide, we then infer potential basin-scaleta rgets for future study.
