The Cody Hydrothermal System

The hot springs of Colter's Hell are the surface manifestations of a much larger hydothermal system. That system has been studied to define its extent, maximum temperature, and mechanism of operation. The study area covers 2700 km/sup 2/ (1040 mi/sup 2/) in northwest Wyoming. Research and field work included locating and sampling the hot springs, geologic mapping, thermal logging of available Wells, measuring thermal conductivities, analyzing over 200 oil and gas Well bottom-hole temperatures, and compiling and analyzing hydrologic data. These data were Used to generate a Model for the hydrothermal system. Library ID#=oitGHC_3110-01.
