Self Potential At Kilauea Summit Area (Keller, Et Al., 1979)
Exploration Activity: Self Potential At Kilauea Summit Area (Keller, Et Al., 1979)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Kilauea Summit Area|
|Exploration Technique||Self Potential|
More recently, Zablocki (1976) has reported the results of an extensive self-potential survey of the summit area of Kilauea. Unusually large positive potential differences (1000--2000 mV) are present over known fumarolic areas and recent eruptive fissures, as well as in areas without surface expression K539of high heat flow but where subsurface intrusions are probably present. A large negative anomaly (Fig. 1) in self-potential (-2000 mV) is coincident with the area of inflation, low resistivity, and high seismicity at the south edge of Kilauea caldera.
