Exploration Activity: Water Sampling At Valles Caldera - Sulphur Springs Geothermal Area (Trainer, 1974)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Valles Caldera - Sulphur Springs Geothermal Area|
|Exploration Technique||Water Sampling|
|Activity Date||1949 - 1974|
The study reports chemical analyses of fluids sampled from the Sulphur Springs within the caldera and from several hot/cold springs and drill holes along the Jemez fault zone were used to construct a preliminary groundwater flow model for the southwestern Jemez Mountains volcanic field.
Three archival samples were analyzed during the study, including two springs near San Ysidro (approximately 30 km southwest of the Valles caldera) collected in 1964 and a single sample from Sulphur Springs collected in 1949. This was one of the earliest studies to suggest a hydrologic link between the spring discharges in San Diego Canyon and the inferred geothermal reservoir(s) beneath the Valles caldera.
