Abstract: Aeromagnetic surveys of the Hawaiian Islands have revealed that the
primary magnetic anomalies associated with the islands are dipole anomalies caused
by the intrusive rocks of the volcanic centers and rift zones. Comparisons of the
direction of magnetization indicated by the dipole anomalies with results of laboratory
measurements on lavas show that in many cases the lavas possess reverse
polarization while the intrusive rocks are normally polarized. These results must be
taken into account when interpreting the magnetic field of submerged marine volcanic
features such as seamounts and when establishing periods of reversal in the
earth's magnetic field.
