Tularosa Basin Play Fairway Analysis Tularosa_Basin_Heat_CRS_Union.zip

This submission contains several shapefiles used for a deterministic PFA, as well as a heat composite risk segment with union overlay, and training sites used for weights of evidence. More detailed metadata can be found in the specific file. This is the heat composite risk segment of the Tularosa Basin, New Mexico and Texas -- used for geothermal play fairway analysis. Temperature gradient, quartz geothermometer, and heat flow data were integrated using the Union overlay method. Classification was as follows. Temperature Gradients: 0 degC/km – 60 degC/km = High Risk; 60 degC/km – 80 degC/km = Medium Risk; > 80 degC/km = Low Risk. Quartz Geothermometers: 0 degC – 60 degC = High Risk; 60 degC – 80 degC = Medium Risk; > 80 degC = Low Risk. Heat Flow: 55 – 70 = High Risk; 70 – 85 = Medium Risk; > 85 = Low Risk.
