Exploration Activity: Isotopic Analysis- Fluid At Sierra Valley Geothermal Area (1990)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Sierra Valley Geothermal Area|
|Exploration Technique||Isotopic Analysis- Fluid|
Determine the recharge of the area
Hydrogen and oxygen isotope data on waters of Coso thermal and nonthermal waters were studied. Hydrogen and oxygen isotopes do not uniquely define the recharge area for the Coso geothermal system but strongly suggest Sierran recharge with perhaps some local recharge.
