Exploration Activity: Well Log Data At North Brawley Geothermal Area (Edmunds & W., 1977)

Exploration Activity Details
Location North Brawley Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Well Log Data
Activity Date 1977 - 1977

Usefulness useful regional reconnaissance
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Exploration Basis
Well log data, thermal gradient holes, and magnetic measurements were all correlated to make a detailed geologic assessment of the North Brawley, Heber, East Mesa, and Salton Sea Geothermal Areas.
 
Notes
Well logs, thermal gradient data, and magnetic data were correlated to form a better geologic understanding of geothermal areas within Imperial Valley. From these studies an estimate of 20,000 MW of potential geothermal energy (4500 MW of which can be feasibly utilized) exists in Imperial Valley.
