This project applies basic geologic skills to the development of an alternative energy project. The project starts with an interpretation of the basic geology of the site, which is a simplified geologic map of the Front Range structures near Golden, CO. Students are required to construct a cross section and determine the depth of an initial bore hole. They then analyze stresses in that hole for hydrofracturing, and predict the geometry of produced fractures. The final part of the project is to perform three point problems to calculate the depth that the fractures will be encountered at two additional boreholes. There is also a writing component to the project in the reporting of results.
