Geothermal energy stands out because it can be used as a baseload resource. This book, unlike others, examines the geology related to geothermal applications.

Geology dictates (a) how geothermal resources can be found, (b) the nature of the geothermal resource (such as liquid- or vapor-dominated) and.

Pilgrim Hot Springs, located on the Seward Peninsula in west-central Alaska, is characterized by hot springs, surrounding thawed regions, and elevated lake temperatures.

The area is of interest because of its potential for providing renewable energy for Nome and nearby rural communities. We performed ground and airborne geophysical investigations of the Pilgrim Springs geothermal area Author: Jonathan M.G.

Glen, Darcy K. McPhee, Paul A. Bedrosian. low-temperature geothermal exploration methods in Socorro, New Mexico. The Socorro Geothermal Area in New Mexico represents a low-temperature, geothermal system demonstrated by several hot springs and an exploration slim hole drilled at the base of Socorro Peak.

Low temperature reservoirs typically lack surface manifestations and equilibrated. Groundwater will circulate in a permeable medium by a process of natural convection if a sufficient temperature gradient exists.

Currently, over 90% operated geothermal power plants are distributed in the volcanic- or magmatic intrusion-related geological systems. Only a few cases are done in metamorphic terranes, especially on the slate formation.
