Abstract

Geothermal exploration involves a high degree of uncertainty and financial risk, and requires reliable exploration data to constrain development decisions. The paper describes a geothermal exploration and resource identification method that is based on building a map of potential geothermal resource areas by combining geological, geochemical and geophysical datasets; it is a powerful tool for visualizing new and existing data during decision-making processes. By performing suitability analysis and geothermal area identification, and by establishing criteria to define geothermal resources with development potential, a map of Iran was constructed highlighting 18 promising areas.
