Abstract: In recent years, the U.S. Geological Survey has been applying various electrical-magnetic (E-M) geophysical techniques to the study of volcanologic processes at Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii. Some of these studies have been directed towards determining the responses of these E-M methods on the cooling and crystallizing lava lake that formed in Kilauea Iki pit crater in 1959. Over the years, this 111 meter-deep ponded body of basaltic magma has served as a natural laboratory for petrologic, geochemical, and geophysical investigations, and hence, has yielded some control for interpreting the resulting E-M data gathered in these studies. A brief discussion of the application results, and some tentative conclusions of these studies are presented.
