Journal Article: Magnetotelluric Evidence Of Potential Geothermal Resource In Puga, Ladakh, Nw Himalaya

Abstract
The Puga area in eastern Ladakh, Jammu and Kashmir, is known to be the most promising geothermal field in India, as pointed out by geo-scientific studies in the area. However, lack of deep subsurface information put constraints to the geothermal resource evaluation in Puga. The recent magnetotelluric study in Puga revealed anomalous conductive (similar to 5 Ohm.m) structure at a depth of 2 km in the area of geothermal manifestation. Analysis of temperature logs indicated a high temperature (similar to 260 degrees C) associated with the anomalous conductive structure and signifies potential geothermal resource in the area. We discuss the results in the context of geothermal resource utilization for power generation in the area.
