Paper and metadata for studies regarding geothermal information and data in West Virginia. Includes location coordinates, chemical analyses, and other factors/measurements.

From the site: "Preliminary study of the potential geothermal resources and analysis of the subsurface temperatures and heat flows of West Virginia. Geothermal resources in eastern United States include (1) warm-spring systems, (2) radioactive granite plutons beneath thick sedimentary cover, and (3) deep sedimentary basins having normal temperature gradients. The Appalachian basin in West Virginia contains sedimentary rocks that are greater than 20000 ft deep; thick sections of shale and sandstone occur in these regions. These deep basins are potentially attractive geothermal resources if higher-than-normal temperature gradients are identified. Numerous warm springs in eastern West Virginia suggest that deep circulation of ground waters along faults may locally elevate wall rock temperatures in the Appalachian basin. This is a preliminary study of the potential geothermal resources and provides an analysis of the subsurface temperatures and heat flow of West Virginia."
