Activity in the field of geothermal energy in Turkey started in 1961 with an inventory of Turkey's hot springs by the Mineral Research and Exploration General Directorate (MTA). Subsequent investigation revealed the great potential of geothermal energy. To enable full utilization of this potential, Turkey was divided into six geothermal regions which are being individually and systematically developed. In 1963, the first geothermal exploration drilling took place in the Agamemnun (Balcova) field which is west of Izmir. At the depth of 40 meters (130 feet) the well yielded a mixture of hot water and steam at the temperature of 124C (255F). The first geothermal field which was utilized for electricity production is in Denizli-Kizildere. Exploration of this field started in 1968. A power plant which has a generation capacity of 20 MWe is now in operation. Another well known geothermal field that was explored in 1982 is Aydin-Germencik field with a temperature of 231C (448F). The names of other well known geothermal fields are lzmir-Seferihisar, Afyon-Omer-Gecek, Canakkalellala, lzmir-Dikili-Bergama, Kutahya-Sima y, and Ankara-Kizilcahamam.

The source of geothermal fluid for a direct use application is often located some distance away from the user. This requires a transmission pipeline to transport the geothermal fluid. Even in the absence of transmission line requirements, it is frequently advisable to employ other than standard piping materials for in-building or aboveground piping. Geothermal fluid for direct use applications is usually transported in the liquid phase and has some of the same design considerations as water distribution systems. Several factors including pipe material, dissolved chemical components, size, installation method, head loss and pumping requirements, temperature, insulation, pipe expansion and service taps should be considered before final specification.

In March 1977, the Division of Conservation Research and Technology of the Energy Research and Development Administration (now the Division of Power Systems of the Department of Energy) began a series of interactive planning workshops designed to involve private citizens and representatives of industry, the academic community, public interest groups, and state and local government in the division's planning process. The first workshop, the Energy Conservation R&D Objectives Workshop, hosted by the Coast Community College District of Costa Mesa, California, was held in San Diego on March 6-8, .1977. At the workshop, participants discussed, and made recommendations on, the division's planning process and the Use of the workshops as a mechanism for involving those outside the government in the planning of energy Research and Development (R&D).

The City of Klamath Falls became interested in the possibility of a establishing geothermal district heating system for downtown government buildings in January 1977. Since that time, the project has undergone some controversial and interesting developments that may be of educational value to other communities contemplating such a project. The purpose and content of this article is to identify the historical development of the project; including the design of the system, well owner objections to the project, aquifer testing, piping failure, and future expansion and marketing incentives.

The subsurface investigation of the Cerro Prieto field and surrounding area is described including the stratigraphy, structure, hydrothermal alteration, and reservoir properties for use in designing reservoir simulation models and planning development of the field. Insights into the depositional, tectonic, and thermal history of the area are presented. The following types of data were used: well sample descriptions and analyses, well logs, geophysical surveys; physiography, and regional geology. (MHR)

The number of commercial licensed aquaculture operations, both warm and cold water facilities, in the State of Arizona has increased by nearly 50% from 1983 to 1985. Most of the new permits were issued to farmers interested in integrating fish culture operations into their irrigated farms. Food fish production directed toward the Phoenix and Tucson metropolitan markets accounts for the largest investments. Catfish, tilapia, bass and trout are the major cultured fishes.
