Description:

Abstract:

This coverage shows areas known or inferred to be underlain by aquifers containing thermal waters with temperatures higher than 50C. See map explanation for discussion of methodology used to define these areas. Over much of the light gray areas, depth to 50C thermal water is greater than 1500m.

Purpose:

Provides a visual representation of existing geothermal resources and potential areas for residential and commercial direct use applications.

Supplemental_Information:

This data layer is shown on a map in conjunction with land ownership and spring and well temperatures.

Map Title: Geothermal Resources of Wyoming, 1983

Geothermal data compiled and interpreted by Henry P. Heasler with assistance from B.S. Hinckley, K.G. Buelow, S.A. Spencer, and E.R. Decker of the Department of Geology and Geophysics, University of Wyoming

Map produced by the National Geophysical Data Center National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for the Geothermal and Hydropower Technologies Division United States Department of Energy Map Scale: 1:500,000 1927 North American Datum Lambert conformal conic projection based on standard parallels 33 and 45

Process_Step:

Process_Description:

The original map was registered and the identified thermal waters polygons were digitized.  A polygon coverage was generated and projected. Once the layer was drawn on a map and reviewed with other geothermal features, such as spring and well temperature data, the polygons were modified by heads-up digitizing on the screen based on revisions provided by the Renewable Energy and Power Technology group.
