Title: Deep Direct-Use Feasibility Study Temperature-Depth Estimates for West Virginia University, Morgantown, WV

Abstract

This dataset contains data spreadsheets and figures that summarize the results of a stochastic analysis of temperatures at depth below the West Virginia University campus in Morgantown, WV. These results are extracted from a study by Smith (2019), whose results are included in a GDR submission that provides rasters and shapefiles for the Appalachian Basin states of New York, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia (GDR submission #1182). Uncertainties considered included geologic properties, thermal properties, and uncertainty from geostatistical interpolation of the surface heat flow. A Monte Carlo analysis of these uncertain properties was used to predict temperatures at depth using a 1-D heat conduction model. For the pixel corresponding to West Virginia University, a .csv file containing the 10,000 temperature-depth profiles estimated from a Monte Carlo analysis is provided. Temperatures are provided for depths from 1-5 km in 0.5 km increments. These data are summarized in a figure containing violin plots that illustrates the probability of obtaining certain temperatures at depth for Morgantown.
