Exploration Activity: Micro-Earthquake At Raft River Geothermal Area (1982)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Raft River Geothermal Area|
Develop a background seismicity before power production begins
Local seismic networks were established to monitor the background seismicity prior to initiation of geothermal power production. The Raft River study area is currently seismically quiet down to the level of approximately magnitude one.
