Geothermal Energy Prospecting In El Salvador
Journal Article: Geothermal Energy Prospecting In El Salvador
AbstractGeochronological and geological studies carried out in El Salvador C. A., located a production geothermal zone to the north of the volcanic belt, in a region named Ahuachapan-Chipilapa. Hydrothermal activity and geochemical analysis indicate the existence of active geothermal faults aligned to the directions South-North and Northwest-Southeast. Radon mapping in that region covered a total of 8.7 km2 where plastic detectors were placed 200 m apart. Results confirmed the existence of active faults and two producing geothermal wells were located.
