AZGS uploads 30-years of geothermal reports and maps online
Arizona is home to at least 60 hot springs, a surface manifestation of shallow geothermal resources (source: National Geophysical Data Center).
Since the 1970s, AZGS has evaluated and characterized numerous potential geothermal hot spots throughout central and southern Arizona. That effort yielded several dozen reports, well-hole data, and maps assessing the potential for geothermal energy. Derivative products include geothermal development plans for most of Arizona's counties.
PDF copies of more than 55 published Open-File Reports and Contributed Reports are now available online at our geothermal page. Our most recent publication involves a rigorous evaluation of the potential of the Clifton Hot Springs area in Greenlee County (Brown, 2007).
