Magnetotelluric data collected in 2016 over the San Emidio geothermal field in Nevada

In curation License 

This data set includes the magnetotelluric (MT) data collected from October 21 to November 9, 2016 over the San Emidio geothermal field in Nevada by Quantec Geoscience USA Inc. on behalf of US Geothermal Inc. as part of a project entitled "A Novel Approach to Map Permeability Using Passive Seismic Emission Tomography" and supported by a grant from the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), U.S. Department of Energy, under award number DE-EE0007698. This data set includes descriptions of the instrumentation, data acquisition and processing procedures, as well as the final processed data and digital archive formats. A total of 81 MT locations were surveyed (52 profile sites, and 29 MT sites). Data were processed and inspected for quality assurance on site, and reviewed daily by the geophysicist in charge of the project. The final processed survey results delivered with the report include:
(a) GPS coordinates of sites or electrodes;
(b) MT data as 133 single-site EDI files of the final processed data containing Complex Spectral Matrices at each frequency;
(c) Two EDI files per profile site were created using mirrored L-configuration;
(d) 13 EDI files for site ?0000? which was repeated every day of the survey;
(e) 11 EDI files processed using BVV remote;
(f) 91 EDI files processed using R4 remote;
(g) 63 EDI files for loggers and equipment tests completed in 2 days;
(f) 14 EDI files for remote site.
The EDI file format has been defined by the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG).
The results have been included in the data sets analyzed as part of the WHOLESCALE project. Entitled "Water & Hole Observations Leverage Effective Stress Calculations and Lessen Expenses", the WHOLESCALE project is supported in part by a grant from the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), U.S. Department of Energy, under award number DE-EE0009032.
