This is the first in a series of reports that covers the feasibility of utilizing wildlife and domestic animals to design a monitoring strategy for assessing the environmental impact of geothermal resource development. Animal tissues and animal products were collected in the vicinity of California and Utah geothermal development sites. These samples are being analyzed for selected elements so as to confirm baseline concentrations in tissues of area fauna. Small mammal populations characteristics are also being monitored at Roosevelt Hot Springs, Utah. Laboratory studies are being conducted to relate the ingestion of selected elements to subsequent changes in elemental concentration of various tissues. This report presents some preliminary data on trace element concentrations in tissues of wildlife and domestic animals. Concentrations in geothermal effluents also were determined. Quality assurance, sample collection, relative abundance of small mammals and, especially, methodology (sample preparational and analytical procedures) are discussed.
