Abstract:

The Coso Monitoring Program is a continuing effort in support of the development of the Navys geothermal resources within the Known Geothermal Resource Area KGRA. Data are presented on the monitoring of steam flow rates and temperatures, water levels in ponds and wells, water chemistry, and rainfall in the Coso Hot Springs Resort Area in California. A monthly photographic essay of the mud pots and pools shows the variation of surface water levels throughout the year. One monitoring site is located within Devils Kitchen, and the other stations are located along the Airport Lake-Coso Hot Springs Fault. Temperature data are used as collected, while the steam flow data are converted from graph units to steam flow in pounds per hour. The conversion factors for the steam data are calculated using the standard orifice equation for gas flow. The Barton pressure differential meters and temperature recorders were calibrated during the months of April and May.
