Exploration Activity: Dipole-Dipole Resistivity At Kilauea East Rift Geothermal Area (Kauahikaua & Klein, 1978)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Kilauea East Rift Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Dipole-Dipole Resistivity
Activity Date 1973 - 1976

Usefulness useful
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Exploration Basis
This study was conducted to learn about and model the resistivity structures in the Puna area
 
Notes
Dipole-dipole cross sections were conducted near well HGP-A. The surveys showed that there is a distinct and abrupt lateral variation in resistivity near the well. The cross sections also indicate that the resistivity structures east of the well are horizontally layered. The top layer has a resistivity of about 6000 ohm-m and the layer below has a resistivity of 5-10 ohm-m.
