Exploration Activity Details
Location Kilauea East Rift Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Petrography Analysis
Activity Date 1989 - 2000

Usefulness not indicated
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Exploration Basis
The purpose of this study was to analyze deep core sample from the Scientific observation holes and piece together a volcanic history of Kilauea
 
Notes
core samples from SOH-1 were analyzed for petrographic features. Hand specimens appear to be mainly aphyric to weakly olivine and plagioclase phyric. 80 thin sections were made. Highly detailed descriptions of the thin sections are documented in the article.
