A Method for Estimating Undiscovered Geothermal Resources in Nevada and the Great Basin

Basic Information
Author: Shevenell, L.A., Coolbaugh, M.
Description:ABSTRACT A preliminary estimate of undiscovered geothermal resources in Nevada is made to illustrate the feasibility of making such an estimate and present one method of doing so using digital information in a geothermal geographic information system (GIS). Although the results are preliminary, they suggest that the total geothermal resources in Nevada capable of generating electricity may be four to five times the known reserves.
