A series of repeated first order leveling surveys across The Geysers geothermal field were carried out during the 1970’s. The results revealed that the region was apparently subsiding. Between 1973 and 1977 a maximum subsidence of some 0.19 m was observed at, what was then, the centre of steam production activities. During 1996 many of the leveling monuments were reoccupied using GPS receivers and their locations measured to a typical accuracy of UH x 0.006 m, ITV x 0.02 m, where IS is one… CONTINUE READING
