Geothermometry At Kawaihae Area (Thomas, 1986)
Exploration Activity: Geothermometry At Kawaihae Area (Thomas, 1986)
|Exploration Activity Details|
Groundwater chemical data are limited due to the small number of wells near Kawaihae; however, the data that are available strongly substantiate the presence of a thermal resource. A measured water temperature of 31 degrees C in one well is clearly above normal ambient temperatures, and the chloride/magnesium ion ratio in the same well is elevated substantially above the normal range (Table 8). Both of these data provide strong evidence that at least a low-level thermal anomaly is present in the area.
