Short summary
Geothermal potential of southern part of Idaho in the US was recognized in the early 1970s; however, the commercial utilization of geothermal resources in the area is yet to be realized. The composition of hot spring/well water can tell us how hot the water at depth is. In this study, we assembled several existing thermal water compositions to estimate reservoir temperatures with a new tool. Our results show that some areas (e.g., Preston) in southern Idaho have good geothermal potential.
