dc.description.abstract Gravity data collected on Niihau support geologic evidence that the island is an erosional remnant of a dead shield volcano whose center of volcanism was just east of the present Niihau highlands. Bathymetric and gravity evidence offer clues to a genetic link between Niihau and west Kauai; onshore gravity suggests a continuous Bouguer high connecting the two regions. This link would be in accord with ocean-bottom topography, which shows a prominent ridge rising above sea level at Niihau and at Kaula Rock to the west. en_US
