National Geothermal Data System (NGDS)

We continue to work toward the development of a National Geothermal Data System, working with other states and federal agencies to create a publically available, comprehensive online resource. Well data from the vast archives of the bureau are being digitized and incorporated into this database. The applications of these data—which include geologic formation tops, reservoir pressures, and reservoir porosity and permeability—extend far beyond an understanding of geothermal resources, and are already being used in other projects where a detailed understanding of the subsurface is required.
