Thermochronometry At Raft River Geothermal Area (1993)
Exploration Activity: Thermochronometry At Raft River Geothermal Area (1993)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Raft River Geothermal Area|
Constraints on the initial orientation and crustal position of the shear zone have been derived from 40Ar/39Ar thermochronology of mineral suites (hornblende, muscovite, biotite, and k-feldspar) collected within and beneath the shear zone along a 27 km transect parallel to the transport direction.
