Exploration Activity: Geothermometry At Raft River Geothermal Area (1973)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Raft River Geothermal Area|
At least 380 hot springs and wells are known to occur throughout the central and southern parts of Idaho.
Estimated aquifer temperatures, calculated using the silica and the sodium-potassium-calcium geochemical thermometers, range from 5 to 3700C and averaged 1100C. Estimated aquifer temperatures in excess of 1400C were found at 42 sites.
