Abstract
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 geothermal reservoir within a few kilometers depth of the surface. Although geological and geophysical data were of some use in the regional surveys, groundwater chemical data was far more helpful in identifying more restricted areas in which to carry out site specific field surveys. Geochemical and geophysical surveys are presently underway in several of the areas identified as potentially having a geothermal resource.
