Resource Exploration and Source Proving Services
Finding geothermal sources for power generation is complicated and highly specialized. Geophysics, geologic mapping, and geochemistry are used to locate geothermal sources.
Shallow Temperature Probes
Temperature measurements of the near-surface can provide valuable heat-flow information.
We offer shallow temperature observations as a companion data set to our magnetotelluric geophysical services. Those shallow data can be “blended” with existing boreholes temperature data to help extrapolate temperature gradients at depth. While the method is inexpensive there are some limitations and we treat these data as supplemental only. However, overall these data can be valuable, especially in dry climates.
Geophysical methods reveal physical properties of Earth's interior by measuring it's response to various energy sources.
