Geothermometry At Raft River Geothermal Area (1980)
Exploration Activity: Geothermometry At Raft River Geothermal Area (1980)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Raft River Geothermal Area|
Geothermometer temperatures of shallow samples suggest significant re-equilibration at temperatures below those found in the deep wells. Silica geothermometer temperatures of water samples from the deep wells are in reasonable agreement with measured temperatures, whereas Na-K-Ca temperatures are significantly higher than measured temperatures. The chemical characteristics of the water, as indicated by chloride concentration, are extremely variable in shallow and deep samples. Chloride concentrations of the deep samples range from 580 to 2200 mg/kg.
