Author: Henneberger, R.C., Lovekin, J., Klein, C.W., and Sanyal, S.K.
Description:The U.S. Department of Interior has assigned to the US Geological Survey (USGS) the task of conducting an updated assessment of the geothermal resources in the United States. In that connection, we offer an objective analysis of the last such national assessment, made in 1978, and presented in USGS Circular 790, in View of the Industry experience accumulated over the intervening 26 years. Based on this analysis we offer our perspective on how such assessment may be improved.
