Snake River Plain FORGE: Site Characterization Data Forge-SRP_UUtah-MTreinvt.doc

The site characterization data used to develop the conceptual geologic model for the Snake River Plain site in Idaho, as part of phase 1 of the Frontier Observatory for Research in Geothermal Energy (FORGE) initiative. This collection includes data on seismic events, groundwater, geomechanical models, gravity surveys, magnetics, resistivity, magnetotellurics (MT), rock physics, stress, the geologic setting, and supporting documentation, including several papers. Also included are 3D models (Petrel and Jewelsuite) of the proposed site.

Data for wells INEL-1, WO-2, and USGS-142 have been included as links to separate data collections.

These data have been assembled by the Snake River Geothermal Consortium (SRGC), a team of collaborators that includes members from national laboratories, universities, industry, and federal agencies, lead by the Idaho National Laboratory (INL). Other contributors include the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), the Center for Advanced Energy Studies (CEAS), the University of Idaho, Idaho State University, Boise State University, University of Wyoming, University of Oklahoma, Energy and Geoscience Institute-University of Utah, US Geothermal, Baker Hughes

"Re-Inversion of Long-Period MT Data over the Eastern Snake River Plain, Idaho, In Support of Phase I of the Idaho National Laboratory FORGE Project." Paper outlines a powerful new MT inversion technique based on deformable edge finite elements and all direct solvers, applied to the ESRP in support of the Snake River FORGE project.
