Exploration Activity: Modeling-Computer Simulations At Akutan Fumaroles Area (Kolker, Et Al., 2010)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Akutan Fumaroles Area|
|Exploration Technique||Modeling-Computer Simulations|
"Conceptual Model: Based on conceptual models built primarily from MT and geochemical datasets, it appears that development of the Akutan geothermal resource for power and/or direct use may be feasible. These datasets point to a shallow, tabular aquifer(s) of 155-180degrees C (i.e., "outflow zone") and a deeper, hotter resource of >220degrees C (i.e., "upflow zone") that will be targeted because of its potentially lower development cost. The initial exploratory wells will attempt to verify the existence of these aquifers, and determine their potential for development. "
