Notes
Four Schlumberger soundings were performed along the coastal strip adjacent to Lahaina town (Fig. 22). Three of the four soundings were able to detect a moderate to low-resistivity basement that was interpreted to be basalt saturated with seawater at 20degrees C (Mattice, 1981). None of the resistivity sounding data in this area indicated subsurface resistivities lower than could be accounted for by local ambient temperatures (Mattice and Lienert, 1980).
