Abstract

High-sensitivity measurements of mercury in soil indicate strong positive anomalies over regions of geothermal activity in three of four areas tested (Long Valley, California; Summer Lake and Klamath Falls, Oregon). All thermal springs are enclosed with the mercury anamaly areas; in distinction to other geochemical methods currently in use, this method also can be used in areas free of heated waters.
