Exploration Activity: Gas Flux Sampling At Kilauea East Rift Geothermal Area (Thomas, 1986)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Kilauea East Rift Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Gas Flux Sampling
Activity Date 1978 - 1986

Usefulness not indicated
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Exploration Basis
This study was conducted as part of the Geothermal Resources Assessment Program initiated in 1980
 
Notes
Radon emanometry data was collected along the East Rift Zone. Complicated patterns of radon outgassing along the lower rift zone were noted. The pattern of variable outgassing rates was interpreted to be caused by a geothermally driven ground gas convection system within the fractured rocks.
