Title: The Value of Spatial Information for Determining Well Placement

Abstract

The article and accompanying spreadsheet represent the information posteriors derived from synthetic data of magnetotellurics (MT). These were used to calculate value of information of MT for geothermal exploration. Information posteriors describe how well MT was able to locate the "throat" of clay caps, which are indicative of hidden geothermal resources. This data is fully explained in the peer-reviewed publication: The value of spatial information for determining well placement: a geothermal example, written by Trainor-Guitton, W., Hoversten, G. M., Ramirez, A., Roberts, J., Juliusson, E., Key, K., and Mellors, R. and published on August 25th, 2014.
