Abstract:
INTRODUCTION: Arid lands will undoubtedly experience increased energy stresses in the near future because of increasing internal populations and external energy appetites. Many arid lands are underlain by vast quantities of energy fuels, but geothermal energy is one of the few environmentally acceptable energy alternatives for arid regions based on criteria of water consumption, efficiency of energy production and pollution characteristics. This report summarizes the published findings of the authors' search of existing data related to Arizona geothermal resources and of geological investigations undertaken by them to provide a comprehensive guide for exploration and to suggest further studies.
