Exploration Activity: Compound and Elemental Analysis At Kilauea East Rift Geothermal Area (Coombs, Et Al., 2006)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Kilauea East Rift Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Compound and Elemental Analysis
Activity Date 1998 - 2002

Usefulness not indicated
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Exploration Basis
This study was conducted to sample the basalts that encompass the submarine flanks of Kilauea
 
Notes
The scope of this study encompassed the submarine slopes of Kilauea. Samples were collected via Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV). Upper slope pillow lavas were sampled in the marine section of the East Rift Zone known as Puna Ridge. The samples were analyzed by electron microscope and infrared spectroscopy. Volatile studies of previous dredged samples from the Puna Ridge have Identified many submarine vents.
