Geothermal Case Studies on OpenEI

This submission contains links to Geothermal Areas on OpenEI that were completed as part of an effort to gather clean, unbiased information on which to build geothermal drilling prospects. The specific areas that were part of this focused effort, or *case studies*, are linked individually, and also available for download as a table in CSV format.

The Geothermal Areas exist live on OpenEI and are constantly evolving with updated information. Snapshots of both the specific case study areas and of all geothermal areas on OpenEI, from the time of submission, have been included in CSV format. For the most up-to-date information, please use the provided **All Geothermal Areas** link to view these on OpenEI.

This dataset also includes a link to the Geothermal Exploration Overview page on OpenEI, which provides exhaustive detail on the activities cataloged for these case studies and their references, as well as the technologies employed in each geothermal area.
