U.S. geothermal potential mapped using Google Earth software #geothermal #google

26 Oct 2011: U.S. Geothermal Potential Mapped in New Interactive Database U.S. researchers have released an interactive database of the nation’s geothermal resources , mapping in detail the areas of exploration that they say could produce roughly 3 million megawatts of energy using Click to enlarge Google Earth Geothermal potential in the U.S. existing technologies. Researchers at the Southern Methodist University (SMU) Geothermal Laboratory assembled geological data from 35,000 sites nationwide, including the depth and temperature of geothermal resources for each state. Those projections, which can be viewed using Google Earth software , suggest there is significantly more potential for geothermal energy than previously believed, particularly in the eastern two-thirds of the nation. While geothermal production in the U.S. has typically been limited to heat-producing, tect...
