Abstract: 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 its geothermal resources. This volume contains four papers detailing their methods and conclusions. Keller et al. of the Colorado School of Mines used the dipole mapping and time-domain EM sounding techniques to define low resistivity areas around the summit and flanks of Kilauea. Kauahikaua and Klein of the Hawaii Institute of Geophysics then detailed the East Rift with independent, two-loop induction and time-domain EM soundings. Finally, Zablocki of the U. S. Geological Survey delineated four anomalous areas on the East Rift with an extensive self-potential survey; one of these areas was chosen as the site of a test hole.
