The Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) received American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2008 funding to compile all DOGAMI legacy geothermal information and make it available to the public and industry. The Aqueous Chemistry Information Layer for Oregon (AQILO-1) publication is part of that work. AQILO-1 represents DOGAMI’s geospatial database of chemical composition for geothermally relevant aqueous fluid.

AQILO-1 is provided in Microsoft® Excel® spreadsheet and Geographic Information System (GIS) geospatial geodatabase formats. The geodatabase of same name contains fields for sample characterization and location, combined with 11 “suites” of liquid and gas analytes representing common analysis results. The geodatabase is statewide in extent and contains 780 sample records with chemical analysis from one or more analyte suites. This map displays the locations of these data. Please read the shapefile metadata.

Chemical composition of geothermally relevant aqueous fluids were compiled from DOGAMI’s published and unpublished literature, along with some additional data compiled from the U.S. Geological Survey. The location of each sample shown in this map was not necessarily verified; refer to the original data source for additional information about location and location uncertainty (see metadata).

The user assumes all responsibility for the accuracy and suitability of these data for a specific application. In no event will DOGAMI be liable for any damages, including lost profits, lost savings, or other incidental or consequential damages arising from the use of or inability to use the data.
