Abstract:

This project has investigated the following principal features of geothermal steam resources 1 sources of heat 2 sources of water 3 importance of seismic activity, so commonly associated with volcanism, to the location and potential of geothermal resources 4 manner in which geothermal energy is transferred from the deep-seated heat source to the near-surface reservoir site 5 major geologic conditions governing the localization of geothermal energy and development of a largescale reservoir 6 exploration methods and techniques for locating and delineating areas of geothermal potential 7 possible uses, both military and civilian, for geothermal energy and 8 some areas throughout the world with potential for geothermal resources that have not been explored.
