This study was conducted to create a model of the thermal structure of Kilauea for the purposes of analyzing geothermal potential as part of the coordinated exploration program for geothermal sources on the Big Island of Hawaii.
A two week micro-seismic study in the Puna district was conducted using an array of seven geophones. Seismic events were recorded from 1-5 km deep. The seismic data was interpreted as the active part of the dike complex being limited to 5 km depth.
