Hydrogeologic Windows: Regional Signature Detection for Blind and Traditional Geothermal Play Fairways applied to Southwestern New Mexico

Abstract

Final Report describing regional signature detection for blind and traditional play fairways as part of Phase I of New Mexico Play Fairway Analysis. This project seeks to reduce exploration risk and identify new prospective targets using available geologic, geochemical, and geophysical data sets. Although this project focuses on southwestern New Mexico, the techniques that were developed during this project are widely applicable elsewhere, particularly in arid regions.
