The goal of the State Coupled Resource Assessment Program is to identify and evaluate geothermal resources in the state, particularly low-temperature potential. Eight tasks were identified and documented in this report as follows:
TASK ONE: Bottom-hole Temperature Survey
TASK TWO: Heat Flow and Temperature Gradient Survey
TASK THREE: Data Translation studies
TASK FOUR: Gravity Data
TASK FIVE: Substate Regions
TASK SIX: Information Dissemination
Heat Flow and Temperature Gradient Survey
TASK SEVEN: State Geothermal Map

The project had three major products; (1) a map "Geothermal Resources of Nebraska,” (2) a significant amount of thermal data collected and documented within the state, and (3) a series of publications, presentations and meetings (documented as an Appendix).
