Summary

Between 1979 and 1982, the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) and the Geophysical Institute, University of Alaska Fairbanks, undertook an assessment of the states geothermal resources under a program jointly sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy and the State of Alaska. During this period, reconnaissance investigations of more than 100 thermal spring sites and fumarole fields located in Alaska were conducted by DGGS.

Purpose

Only a few geothermal areas in Alaska have thus far received any detailed investigation and, except for reconnaissance studies, most of the state's geothermal resources remain virtually unexplored. There has been a growing awareness, however, that geothermal resources can play a significant role in meeting the states energy needs, particularly in rural areas. The primary purpose of this map, therefore, is to aid potential users in development of geothermal resources in a manner beneficial for Alaska.
