Abstract

Data collected during 1975-77 are combined with published and unpublished data from several sources to provide a data base that can be useful for assessing the geothermal potential of 27 hot-spring areas in southwestern Montana. Parameters determined in the field were site location, flow rate, specific conductance , pH, and temperature. Laboratory determinations were concentrations of major and trace chemical constituents. The stable isotopic composition and gross alpha and gross beta activity of the waters were determined for several sites, as well as the composition of gases associated with the water. Temperatures of the thermal waters exceeded 100 F at each of the locations. Temperature profiles in water wells near several hot-spring areas are tabulated. Sources of data included in the report, and sources of related data not in the report, are identified in the Selected References. (Woodard-USGS)
