Abstract
The Hawaiian Islands were formed from basaltic lavas, some of which have high concentrations of pyroxene and olivine. Since chromium is associated with the foregoing minerals, it is reasonable to assume that the element is present in the soils of Hawaii. The present study was designed to determine the presence and the dislribution of the element in the various great soil groups formed through the process of laterizarion. Other objectives were to determine the correlation, if any, between chromium concentration and the intensity of weathering in the soils and the influence of the parent material on the accumulation of the element. This study will attempt to show that both these factors play important roles in the concentration of chromium in the Hawaiian soils which were analyzed.
