  • Rudman, Albert J. (Hawaii Institute of Geophysics, University of Hawaii at Manoa, 1978)
    A 6445-foot test well was completed on April 27, 1976 in the Puna Area of Hawaii as part of an extensive project to investigate a geothermal reservoir for energy production. Because bottom hole temperatures exceeded 300°C, ...
  • Roy, Kenneth J (Hawai'i Institute of Geophysics, 1970-10)
  • Cox, Malcolm E.; Thomas, Donald M. (Hawaii Institute of Geophysics, University of Hawaii at Manoa, 1979)
    Because of the complex geological and hydrological conditions and the virtual lack of thermal springs, regional geothermal investigations in Hawaii require the use of techniques substantially different from those conventionally ...
  • Thomas, Donald; Lewin, John C (Department of Health, State of Hawaii, 1989)
    From the cover memorandum: "We are enclosing copies of recent correspondence with Donald Thomas of the Hawaii Institute of Geophysics regarding potential impacts of geothermal well drilling operations and expressing his ...
  • Thomas, Donald (Hawaii Institute of Geophysics, University of Hawaii at Manoa, 1988)
    Studies of earthquake precursory phenomena during the last several decades have found that significant geophysical and geochemical changes can occur prior to intermediate and large earthquakes. Among the more intensely ...
  • Klein, Douglas P.; Kauahikaua, James P. (Hawaii Institute of Geophysics, University of Hawaii at Manoa, 1975)
    Geoelectric reconnaissance surveys were performed on Hawaii Island to locate areas of low resistivity that might have the potential for commercial geothermal development. The lower northeast end of the Kilauea East Rift ...
  • Keller, G. V.; Skonan, C. K.; Skonan, J. J.; Daniels, J.; Kauahikaua, J. P.; Klein, D. P.; Zablocki, C. J. (Hawaii Institute of Geophysics, University of Hawaii at Manoa, 1977)
    Three geophysical research organizations, working together under the auspices of the Hawaii Geothermal Project, have used several electrical and electromagnetic exploration techniques on Kilauea volcano, Hawaii to assess ...
  • Thomas, Donald M. (Geothermal Resources Council, 1979-09)
    The preliminary phase of a geothermal resource assessment program for the State of Hawaii has been completed. Several locations on all the major islands of the Hawaiian chain have been identified as potentially having a ...
  • Thomas, Donald M. (Hawaii Institute of Geophysics, University of Hawaii at Manoa, 1985)
    This document summarizes the available geologic, geochemical, and geophysical data for all prospective geothermal resource areas on all islands in Hawaii current to 1985.
  • Kroopnick, P. M.; Buddemeier, R. W.; Thomas, D.; Lau, L. S.; Bills, D. (Hawaii Institute of Geophysics, University of Hawaii at Manoa, 1978)
    A water quality monitoring program of the Hawaii Geothermal Project well A (HGP-A) was conducted for downhole depth samples and continuous discharge samples in 1976 to 1977. The well water was slightly saline (about 5-10 ...
  • Thomas, Donald; Cox, Malcolm; Erlandson, Dale; Kajiwara, Leslie (Hawaii Institute of Geophysics, University of Hawaii at Manoa, 1979)
    A regional geothermal resource assessment has been conducted for the major islands in the Hawaiian chain. The assessment was made through the compilation and evaluation of the readily accessible geological, geochemical, ...
  • Hawaii Institute of Geophysics, University of Hawaii (Hawaii Institute of Geophysics, University of Hawaii, 1982-06)
    Preliminary geological, geochemical, and geophysical field surveys have been conducted on Mokapu Peninsula on the island of Oahu in an effort to determine whether sufficient indications of geothermal potential exist within ...
  • Furumoto, A. S.; Macdonald, G. A.; Druecker, M.; Fan, P. F. (Hawaii Institute of Geophysics, University of Hawaii at Manoa, 1977)
    This first volume of the series on geothermal exploration in Hawaii has attempted to gather information and data relevant to geothermal resources, which were available prior to the commencement of the exploration program. ...
  • Suyenaga, W.; Broyles, M.; Furumoto, A. S.; Norris, R.; Mattice, M. D. (Hawaii Institute of Geophysics, University of Hawaii at Manoa, 1978)
    This volume contains reports on seismological studies done in conjunction with other geophysical and geochemical studies of the Hawaii Geothermal Project. The studies were conducted on the easternmost portion of the East ...
  • Epp, David; Halunen, A. John, Jr. (Hawaii Institute of Geophysics, University of Hawaii at Manoa, 1979)
    We report temperature versus depth for 21 wells on the Island of Hawaii. The highest temperatures were measured in wells on Kilauea's east rift zone in the Puna area. Temperatures decrease rapidly north and south of the ...
  • Furumoto, Augustine S (Hawaii Geothermal Project, 1975-03-11)
    This is a short note summarizing results of geophysical surveys over the East Rift of Kilauea. Details on data and methods of analysis are being compiled for a later more comprehensive report.
  • Skokan, Catherine King (Colorado School of Mines, 1974-10)
    A time-domain electromagnetic survey was conducted over the East Rift Zone of Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii. The purpose of the survey was two-fold. First, the survey was intended to give greater insight into interpretation ...
