The Idaho Department of Water Resources provides an interactive map with information on geothermal wells and springs in the state. Wells and springs are split into low-temperature (85 to 212 degrees fahrenheit) and high-temperature (above 212 degrees) groups.
Users can click on individual wells and springs to find more information, including temperature, discharge, and use.
There’s still time to register for our upcoming webinar, “Planning for Coastal Storm & Erosion Hazards”, which will take place on Thursday July 6th, 1:30pm EDT/10:30am PDT. This 90-minute webinar will focus on efforts to anticipate, mitigate, and respond to coastal storms, erosion, and associated hazards at the federal, state, and local level. Three case studies from around the U.S. will be featured as examples of how coastal hazard planning can evolve over time, with a focus on how geoscience informs planning at all stages. Click here to register.
We will also be hosting a webinar on Wednesday August 2nd at 3:00 pm EDT, entitled “Building the Modern World: Geoscience that Underlies our Economic Prosperity.” This webinar, based on a June 12th Congressional briefing, will focus on the fundamental geoscientific underpinnings of our nation’s infrastructure, from building materials and construction projects to hazard mitigation and coastal planning. You can register for this webinar here.
Geoscience information is integral to the strength and growth of communities and provides the resources for economic growth. All building materials, energy resources, construction projects, and hazard mitigation efforts are fundamentally based on geoscientific data and the geoscience workforce.
The industrial materials and minerals used to construct buildings/infrastructure
The importance of readily available construction materials and the resulting demand for mines and quarries throughout the U.S.
How geoscience is used to determine whether or not sites are suitable for infrastructure development
How geoscience is used to help guide design and construction to enhance the quality of life, economic strength, and physical security of coastal areas
