Abstract:

Naval facilities along the Atlantic Coastal Plain were evaluated for their potential as geothermal energy users. Geothermal source temperatures were determined by extrapolating surface temperature gradients to the basement. A list of these temperatures is presented. A table of non-electrical energy consumption at each facility is also presented. The source temperature and non- electrical energy consumption for each facility have been used to determine promising sites for further investigation.
