The characteristics of natural geothermal reservoirs cover a wide spectrum in terms of temperature, depth, geometry, geology, and fluid chemistry.

Geostatistical Analysis of Bottom-Hole Temperatures and Heat Flow in the State of Texas, USA

This project seeks to perform such geostatistical analysis of data made available from the National Geothermal Database System (NGDS) for the State of Texas in order to better define the geothermal resources of a region.

Concept for a Distributed Baseload Binary Power Network

A network of high-efficiency, modular power plants installed at intervals along the course of the Missouri River in the Williston Basin could generate as much as 300 MW of electrical power.
