If DOSECC and Enercon win this bid, they will get $35 million over a five-year period to drill the first hole.
DOSECC has proposed a project to study the state of stress and heat flow in an earthquake zone near the San Andreas fault, to learn how earthquakes occur.
According to Bob Andrews, who managed the project for DOSECC and is now with the National Research Council Board on Radioactive Waste Management, the benefits of borehole monitoring for earthquakes are so great that it would be useful to instrument a series of 15 to 20 boreholes at depths of about 5 kilometers along the landward trace of the San Andreas fault to obtain a continuous pattern of stress.
"My perception is that the health of earth sciences support is not such that they can afford the luxury of an expensive drilling program," says DOSECC President Andrews.
