Exploration Activity: Aeromagnetic Survey At Kilauea Southwest Rift And South Flank Area (Thomas, 1986)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Kilauea Southwest Rift And South Flank Area|
|Exploration Technique||Aeromagnetic Survey|
Aeromagnetic data (Godson et al., 1981) for the southwest rift appears to substantiate the presence of a thermal resource; there is a marked bipolar magnetic anomaly paralleling the rift zone from the summit to the lower rift near the coast suggesting either that intense hydrothermal alteration has occurred or that subsurface temperatures exceed the Curie temperature.
