Cascade Volcano Observatory, United States Geological Survey
This site is authored by the Cascades Volcano Observatory and provides an introduction about how the internal heat associated with young volcanic systems has been harnessed to produce geothermal energy. There are brief examples of places where geothermal energy is being used or is being considered for development, including the Newberry Caldera in Oregon, the Geysers geothermal field near Santa Rosa, California, and the Salton Sea in California.
