Exploration Activity: Ground Electromagnetic Survey At Kilauea East Rift Geothermal Area (Kauahikaua & Klein, 1978)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Kilauea East Rift Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Ground Electromagnetic Survey
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
An Electromagnetic transient sounding (time domain) survey was conducted Puna area. A total of 15 soundings were recorded in the area. The measurements were taken by using a straight grounded wire 1 km or less in length. The wire was energized with a square wave current with a period of 13 seconds. The induced current was recorded from a coil of wire laid horizontally on the ground. Interpretation of the data was made using an inversion computer program and the primary magnetic field was estimated directly from the data rather than computed from a theoretical formula. This survey was good for learning about the deep resistivity structures.
