Geothermal Resources of the Western Arm of the Black Rock Desert, Northwestern Nevada, Part 1, Geology and Geophysics

The purpose of this report, prepared in conjunction with the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, is to provide the Bureau with the information necessary to determine the geothermal potential of the western arm of the Black Rock Desert. The information required by the Bureau includes: (1) A geologic map of the Black Rock area, showing lithologic units and known and inferred faults, (2) definition of possible geothermal anomalies from the examination of thermal infrared imagery, (3) delineation of the surface thermal gradient, and (4) delineation of the depth to bedrock beneath the study area. These objectives were accomplished by a multidiscipline approach of hydrological, geochemical, geophysical, and remote-sensing techniques. The work was done between February 1979 and May 1980.
