High Resolution Aeromagnetic Survey, Villa Grove, Colorado, USA, 2011

February 5, 2020

This data release includes data collected from the Villa Grove helicopter magnetic survey in northern San Luis Valley and Poncha Pass region in south-central Colorado, USA. The survey area extends over the northern part of Great Sand Dunes National Park, Poncha Pass and vicinity, and into the southern end of the Upper Arkansas Valley. It includes the communities of Crestone, Villa Grove, Saguache, and Salida. Several U.S. Geological Survey programs (including the National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Program, Mineral Resources Program, and Geothermal Program), as well as the Colorado Geological Survey, funded the survey. The data are part of studies to help refine our knowledge in this area about the nature of aquifers, the potential for geothermal energy resources, the likelihood of seismic hazards, and the geology of the northern Rio Grande rift.
