|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Chena Geothermal Area|
|Exploration Technique||Refraction Survey|
|Activity Date||1979 - 1980|
Geophysical studies through the University of Alaska Fairbanks' Geophysical Institute.
A seismic refraction survey confirmed the presence of fractured, water-saturated granitic bedrock, as indicated by the Schlumberger soundings measured in conjunction with this research project. The depth to the massive granitic bedrock is approximately 40 m.
