Newberry Conceptual Geophysical Model

Conceptual model for the Newberry Caldera geothermal area. Model is centered around caldera and evaluates multiple geophysical datasets to derive a conceptual subsurface model.


Conductor layer based on transient electromagnetic data from Fitterman et al., 1988 (figure 10) Base of conductor layer based on MT conductor values found in Waibel et al., 2014 (DOE document, figure 38) Resistor layer based on magnetotellurics from Fitterman et al., 1988 (figure 13). Seismic intrusives layer representing a smoothed version of 5.5 km/s seismic velocity layer defined in Beachly 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 and geologic layers
