Exploration Activity: Time-Domain Electromagnetics At Kilauea East Rift Geothermal Area (Skokan, 1974)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Kilauea East Rift Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Time-Domain Electromagnetics
Activity Date 1974 - 1974

Usefulness useful
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Exploration Basis
This study was conducted to improve the interpretation techniques of time domain electromagnetic data and to gain a more complete picture of the geothermal resource within the east rift zone.
 
Notes
A time-domain electromagnetic survey was conducted over the east rift zone for the purposes of improving the interpretation techniques of time domain electromagnetic data and to gain a more complete picture of the geothermal resource within the East Rift Zone. Three interpretation methods were used: first, a maximum voltage resistivity map was created; second, a layered earth model was made; third, asymptotic curves were used to estimated resistivities and thicknesses of sequences of layers. The interpretation of the data showed an area of geothermal interest about seven km south of the town of Pahoa.
