Exploration Activity: Telluric Survey At Coso Geothermal Area (1977)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Coso Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Telluric Survey
Activity Date 1977

Usefulness not indicated
DOE-funding Unknown

Exploration Basis
To investigate electrical properties of rocks associated with thermal phenomena of the Devil's Kitchen-Coso Hot Springs area
Telluric current mapping outlined major resistivity lows associated with conductive valley fill of the Rose Valley basin, the Coso Basin, and the northern extension of the Coso Basin east of Coso Hot Springs. A secondary resistivity low with a north-south trend runs through the Coso Hot Springs--Devil's Kitchen geothermal area.
