Geohydrology, Aqueous Geochemistry, and Thermal Regime of the Soda Lakes and Upsal Hogback Geothermal Systems, Churchill County, Nevada

The adjacent Soda Lakes and Upsal Hogback geothermal areas are in the west-central Carson Desert, about 100 kilometers east of Reno, Nev. Both areas represent the discharge parts of hydrothermal-convection systems in which rising thermal fluid is swept northeastward and northward in the direction of lateral ground-water flow within the uppermost 250 meters of nonmarine basin-fill sediments and, at Upsal Hogback, interbedded basalt flows, rather than emerging at land surface as thermal springflow. This report summarizes the results of several years of intermittent field studies of two geothermal systems that were included in an earlier reconnaissance of selected hydrothermal systems in northern and central Nevada (Olmsted and others, 1975).
