Topographic Features

Topography is the shape and arrangement of physical features on a surface. In the case of geothermal exploration, horst and graben topography or volcanoes may indicate underlying structures and their associated processes that may be conducive to the development of geothermal systems. Although topographic features are very preliminary indicators of geothermal systems, they are easily identifiable.
