Newberry Conceptual Geologic Model

Conceptual model for the Newberry Caldera geothermal area. Model is centered around caldera and evaluates geologic information in tandem with some geophysical datasets to derive a conceptual subsurface model.


Geologic information from the USGS geologic map of Newberry and cross-sections from Sonnenthal et al, 2012 West flank seismic body representing a fractional change in seismic velocity of 0.1, defined in Beachly et al., 2012 and Heath et al., 2015 West flank gravity body "granite" that represents a gravity anomaly identified in Waibel et al., 2014 (DOE document, figure 35) Magma chamber defined seismically, found in Heath et al., 2015 Ring fracture fault intrusions Various faults sourced from the USGS geologic map of Newberry, Grasso et al. 2012's fault and fissure mapping
