Arizona geothermal publications now online

More than 50 AZGS publications and maps on geothermal energy in Arizona are now online and can be read or freely downloaded. The publications represent more than 30 years of studies and investigation by AZGS geologists and other contributors and collaborators.

There is growing interest in geothermal energy across the country and in Arizona, and by making these reports more easily accessible, we hope to encourage more exploration and development of this renewable energy resource.

AZGS is a partner in developing the new National Geothermal Data System (NGDS) and is the lead agency for the State Geological Surveys in a US Dept. of Energy project to deploy the NGDS in each state and populating it with state-specific data.
