Exploration Activity: Ground Gravity Survey At Dixie Valley Geothermal Area (Blackwell, Et Al., 2003)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Dixie Valley Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Ground Gravity Survey
Activity Date 1979 - 2000

Usefulness useful
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Exploration Basis
Data from multiple gravity surveys has been combined to make a comprehensive bouguer gravity anomaly map of the Dixie Valley area
 
Notes
A comprehensive bouguer gravity anomaly map of Dixie Valley has been produced by combining data from multiple regional and local studies conducted in the past. Gravity data measured in the 1970's by Hunt Oil, Sun Oil, and Southland royalty (all unpublished reports) ware used. These data were combined with detailed studies along the range front of the production area conducted in 1996 (Blackwell et al., 1999). An overall bouguer gravity anomaly map of Dixie Valley was produced by combining these data. Dixie Valley is clearly an area of negative residual gravity due to the low density of valley fill compared to the bedrock ranges.
