Dixie Valley (Nevada, USA)

Oxbow geothermal field, Dixie Valley, Nevada

Volcano: Dixie Valley geothermal field (see Dixie Valley geothermal field at the Smithsonian Institution website in a new tab)
Type: Soil Diffuse Emission
Description: The Dixie Valley geothermal field in west central Nevada feeds a double-flash power plant that produces 62 MW of electric power. The geothermal field is located along the western, deeper margin of DV near the Stillwater Fault. The recently identified dead zone is an area with anomalous plant mortality located in the northwestern part of the geothermal field extending southeast from an area of persistent fumarolic activity along the Stillwater Fault to the valley floor.
