Low Temperature Geothermal Resource Assessment for Desalination in United States AASG and SMU Wells Updated and Filtered

This data is a compilation of well observations from the Southern Methodist University (SMU) and Association of American State Geologists (AASG), location of identified low temperature geothermal systems from United States Geological Survey (USGS), and low temperature geothermal wells and springs from Oregon Institute of Technology Geo-Heat Center (OIT-GHC). The data is linked to NREL`s Geothermal Prospector online tool and shape files can be downloaded from the provided links. This study is also published at GRC Annual meeting on October 25th, 2016. Database contains information concerning well identification (Observation URI, Well Name, Well Status), county, state, latitude/longitude, spatial reference system (SRS) used to map points, depth of temperature measurement, temperature, information source, and parent dataset (e.g., SMU or AASG). The full dataset was filtered for the low-temperature criteria, where temperatures are in the range 30 °C to 150 °C.
