Description:
Abstract:
This report is one in a series of digital maps, data files, and reports generated by the US Geological Survey (USGS) to provide geologic information for the Interior Columbia Basin Ecosystem Management Project (ICBEMP), a US Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management interagency project. The various digital maps and data files that were provided by teh USGS and that are available in this and other reports are being used in a geographic information system (GIS)-based ecosystem assessment. The assessment will include a comprehensive analysis of past, present, and future ecosystem conditions within the general area of the Columbia River Basin east of the Cascade Mountains.
Purpose:
To provide a digital geologic map database of low- to moderate-temperature geothermal springs and wells in the Pacific Northwest.

Data_Set_Credit:
This product would not exist without the input of the many geoscientists whose work has previously been compiled to create datasets of geothermal water information. We had the simpler task of converting our predecessors' digital spreadsheet datasets to a single unified geographic information system format. We acknowledge the work of those geoscientists and the agencies that supported their compilations. Those agencies include the US Geological Survey, the US Department of Energy, the California Division of Mines and Geology, the Idaho Geological Survey, the Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology, the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology, the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries, the Oregon Institute of Technology Geo-Heat Center, the Utah Geological and Mineral Survey, and the Washington State Department of Natural Resources. We particularly acknowledge Patrick Geehan, the Bureau of Land Management project coordinator for the Interior Columbia River Basin Ecosystem Management Project. Pat had the foresight to recognize that geology could contribute in many ways to ecosystem management and sought input from the US Geological Survey. We also gratefully acknowledge Patrick Muffler for his review of this report.

Data_Quality_Information:
Logical_Consistency_Report:
The sources of digital data for the geothermal springs and wells maps were individual geothermal reports for the states of California (Youngs, 1994), Idaho (Dansart, Kauffman, and Mink, 1994), Montana (Metesh, 1994), Nevada (Garside,1994), Oregon (Black, 1994), Utah (Blackett, 1994), and Washington (Schuster and Bloomquist, 1994). Locations of rivers and perennial streams used on the geothermal springs and wells maps were obtained from USGS 1:2,000,000 scale Digital Line Graphs (US Geological Survey, 1990).
Completeness_Report:
Digital geothermal data for the state of Wyoming were not available and, thus, not included in this report.

Process_Description:
Digital geothermal data from all the states except Washington were converted from a variety of spreadsheet programs into dBase IV database formatted files using Excel 5.0. The DBF files were converted into spatial GIS datasets for each state using PC ARC/INFO 3.4.2 and then exported to a SUN/ARC/INFO platform where they were combined to produce an integrated low- and moderate-temperature geothermal waters GIS for the Pacific Northwest.
