Self-potential surveys conducted over the summit and flank of Hualalai (Jackson and Sako, 1982; D. B. Jackson, pers. commun., 1983) indicate an elongate self-potential anomaly extending across the summit and down the northwest rift to Kaupulehu Crater. The positively polarized anomaly extends over an area of approximately 6 km 2 and has been interpreted to be the result of one or more buried high-temperature intrusive bodies (Jackson and Sako, 1982). Attempts to extend the self-potential profiles to lower elevations were not able to detect additional anomalies or were interfered with by buried pipelines or grounded fences.
