Geothermal Favorability Map of the Great Basin 2005

Preliminary Geothermal Favorability Map of the Great Basin. Provided by the U. S. Geological Survey and the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology in 2005, originators include Mark Coolbaugh, Richard Zehner, Corne Kreemer, David Blackwell, Gary Oppliger, Don Sawatzky, Geoff Blewitt, Aasha Pancha, Maria Richards, Catie Helm Clark, Lisa Shevenell, Gary Raines, Gary Johnson, Tim Minor, Tonya Boyd. This ESRI real number GRID provides information for assessing regional geothermal potential in the Great Basin. The values provide a ranking of favorability for high temperature (greater than 150C) extensional type geothermal systems. The favorability calculation is based on a logistic regression posterior probability statistic, with the GRID value being proportional to the log transformed (posterior logit) logistic regression posterior probability. A total of 51 geothermal systems were used as training sites for weights of evidence and logistic regression spatial statistics. These 51 geothermal systems are either producing electrical power today or have geothermometer temperatures at 150C.
