Basic Information
Author: Altshuler, Sam , Arcado, Ted
Description:The results of three ambient air monitoring programs performed downwind of The Geysers, California, are described. These studies, conducted since 1976, have monitored the declining ambient air concentrations of hydrogen sulfide CH2S) m Lake County. During the 13 years of monitoring, geothermal power production has increased from approximately 500 to 2,000 MW, H2S emissions from power plants have declined from 1,900 to less than 200 lb-hr, and ambient H2S concentrations have significantly declined.
