Title: Utah FORGE: Temperature Contours at 200 m

Abstract

The individual shapefiles in this dataset delineate estimated temperature contours (20, 40, 60, and 80 deg C) at a depth of 200 m in the Milford, Utah FORGE area. Contours were derived from 86 geothermal, gradient, and other wells drilled in the area since the mid-1970s with depths greater than 50 m. Conductive temperature profiles for wells less than 200 m were extrapolated to determine the temperature at the desired depth. Because 11 wells in the eastern section of the study area (in and around the Mineral Mountains) are at higher elevations compared to those closer to the center of the basin, temperature profiles were extrapolated to a constant elevation of 200 m below the 1830 m (6000 ft) a.s.l. datum (approximate elevation of alluvial fans at the base of the Mineral Mountains) to smooth the contours across the ridges and valleys.
