Heat Flow Research and Exploration for Geothermal Power Black Rock Desert, Nevada

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Measurements of heat flow near the earth's surface provide the most reliable boundary conditions to be employed in the calculation of models of subsurface temperatures and the spatial distribution of crustal sources of heat. The subsurface temperature and heat source distributions, in turn, have many broad implications in the explanation of several geologically-observed phenomena and must be considered in exploration for geothermal power. In this report, several aspects of modern heat flow research are briefly summarized and reviewed. These comments are then used as a basis for a heat flow research project that would provide more definite data on the ... continued below
