Title: Geothermal Variations in Oil Fields of Los Angeles Basin, California

Author(s): Anders J. Carlson (2)


Data obtained from temperature measurements in oil wells of the Los Angeles basin are presented, and some causes of abnormal temperature conditions and factors affecting the interpretation of geothermal data are noted. The relations of geothermal gradients and isothermal depths to structure are discussed for the Santa Fe Springs, Long Beach, and Torrance fields. Variations in the geothermal constants are considered with respect to the geology of the region, and the possible correlative value of temperature data is suggested.
