Nevada Play Fairway - Steptoe Valley Geodatabase and Modeling Data


This package contains data and metadata for the 3d thermal model, well lithology logs, gravity grids and depth to basement inversions, play fairway modelling, and ArcGIS geodatabase resources.

This project focused on defining geothermal play fairways and development of a detailed geothermal potential map of a large transect across the Great Basin region (96,000 km2), with the primary objective of facilitating discovery of commercial-grade, blind geothermal fields (i.e. systems with no surface hot springs or fumaroles) and thereby accelerating geothermal development in this promising region.
