Develop parameters to identify geothermal region
Statistical methods are outlined to separate spatially, temporally, and magnitude-dependent portions of both the random and non-random components of the seismicity. The methodology employed compares the seismicity distributions with a generalized Poisson distribution. Temporally related events are identified by the distribution of the interoccurrence times. From the temporal characteristics of the seismicity associated with these regions, a general discriminant was constructed that combines several physical parameters for identifying the presence of a geothermal system.
