Radon Measurements At Three New Zealand Geothermal Areas
Journal Article: Radon Measurements At Three New Zealand Geothermal Areas
AbstractRadon-222 measurements ranging from 0·10 to 62 nCi l-1CO2 are reported for geothermal areas at Wairakei, Broadlands and Ngawha, New Zealand. They suggest that for Wairakei the origin of the 222Rn is deep, follows the carbon dioxide, and there is little contribution from local ground water. The reverse is true at Ngawha, and Broadlands is intermediate. Comparison of radon and carbon dioxide levels gives some information about permeability in a given field. If a negative correlation is found, permeability may be predicted to be low.
