Exploration Activity: Ground Gravity Survey At North Brawley Geothermal Area (Department, 1979)

Exploration Activity Details
Location North Brawley Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Ground Gravity Survey
Activity Date 1971 - 1971

Usefulness useful regional reconnaissance
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Exploration Basis
Gravity surveys were done for regional exploration in Imperial Valley
 
Notes
Gravity surveys were conducted in Imperial Valley during early geothermal exploration. North Brawley sits over an abnormally high Bouguer anomaly. The original journal article for this gravity study could not be accessed; information about the gravity anomaly is mentioned in an environmental impact report written for the planning of the first experimental power plant at North Brawley
