Title: Geological Prospects for Development of Geothermal Energy in Hawaii 
Author: MacDonald, Gordon A.
Date: 1973-07

Citation: Macdonald GA. 1973. Geological prospects for development of geothermal energy in Hawaii. Pac Sci 27(3): 209-219.
Abstract: Prospects for the development of geothermal steam or hot water
for generation of electric power in Hawaii do not appear to be especially favorable,
but possibilities do exist and are still far from being adequately tested. A potentially
much greater resource is the direct use of volcanic heat, but much research remains
to be done before such use can become an actuality.
