Title: Geothermal Variations in Coalinga Area Fresno County, California

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


Variations of isothermal elevations with respect to structure are developed from temperature measurements in fifty-six wells of the Coalinga area. The comparative trend of isotherms, geologic strata, and ground surface is shown on two vertical sections through the anticlinal structure of the Eastside field. The results indicate that rock temperatures in this vicinity are controlled chiefly by surface topography and thickness of sediments. Definite correlation between relative temperatures and the oil-bearing structure is not evident.
