SE Great Basin Play Fairway Analysis PFA Models and Probability Map SE_Great_Basin_PFA_Model_2 (1).zip

This submission includes a Na/K geothermometer probability greater than 200 deg C map, as well as two play fairway analysis (PFA) models. The probability map acts as a composite risk segment for the PFA models. The PFA models differ in their application of magnetotelluric conductors as composite risk segments. These PFA models map out the geothermal potential in the region of SE Great Basin, Utah. This is a play fairway analysis model of the southeastern Great Basin created using a heat composite risk segment layer consisting of Na/K geothermometers (probability > 200 degrees C), Quaternary mafic igneous activity (2 km buffer), Quaternary felsic igneous activity (2 km buffer), and heat flow (probability >= 80 mW/m squared) and a permeability composite risk segment layer consisting of Quaternary fault density (probability >= 0.5 km length/area, search radius of 5 km, cell size 1 km), Quaternary fault critical stress (3 km diameter circular boundary) and east trending, igneous activity controlling, lineaments (5 km boundaries), and magnetotelluric conductors (probability >=0.1 S/m).
