  1. These images show the comprehensive methodology used for creation of a Play Fairway Analysis to explore the geothermal resource potential of the Tularosa Basin, New Mexico. The deterministic methodology was originated by the petroleum industry, but was custom-modified to function as a knowledge-based geothermal explorationmore » tool. The stochastic PFA flow chart uses weights of evidence, and is data-driven. « less
  2. In this submission is the groundwater composite risk segment (CRS) used for play fairway analysis. Also included is a heatflow probability map, and a shaded relief map of the Tularosa Basin, NM.
  3. This is a zipped file containing raw magnetotelluric (MT) data collected as part of the Phase 2 Tularosa Basin geothermal play fairway analysis project in New Mexico. The data for each MT station are in standard .edi text files which are accompanied by graphic filesmore » illustrating details. These data cover part of McGregor Range, Fort Bliss, New Mexico. The MT survey was done by Quantec Geoscience. « less
  4. This is the inversion resistivity data from a magnetotelluric survey done as part of Phase 2 Tularosa Basin, New Mexico, geothermal play fairway analysis. The data covers part of McGregor Range, Fort Bliss. The inversion was done by Phil Wannamaker and Virginia Maris of themore » Energy & Geoscience Institute at the University of Utah. The data are contained in a text file and data coordinates represent grid cell centers. « less
  5. This is a zipped ArcGIS shapefile containing faults mapped for the Tularosa Basin geothermal play fairway analysis project. The faults were interpolated from gravity and seismic (NASA area) data, and from geomorphic features on aerial photography. Field work was also done for validation of faultsmore » which had surface expressions. « less
