A reconnaissance study of the hydrothermal characteristics of Pilgrim Springs, Alaska

Basic Information
Author: Osterkamp, T.E. , Gosink, J.P.
Description:A reconnaissance level study of the Pilgrim Springs geothermal system was conducted to determine the near-surface thermal regime and to obtain information on the ground water flow regime within the thawed ground area. Measurements included soil temperatures, apparent electrical conductivity of the soil, electrical conductivity and temperature in the Pilgrim River, saturated hydraulic conductivity of the soil and ground water flow characteristics (direction and velocity). In addition the size, number and characteristics (geometry, direction of flow) of near-surface convective plumes were investigated. Measured temperature profiles were used to estimate ground water flow velocities.
