Maui Gravity and Soil Gas Surveys
Contains a ground-based gravity survey of South Maui and a series of soil CO2 flux and temperature surveys encompassing Maui and the Big Island.
The gravity survey was collected from approximately 284 km2 and consisted of 400 gravity stations with 400 m spacing. Locations were derived with full DGPS. Station and line location, Complete Bouger Anomaly, first vertical derivative and horizontal gradient maps were calculated and produced.
The soil CO2 flux and temperature surveys were conducted on the islands of Hawaii and Maui in April and July 2010. Average soil temperatures were measured over 10 cm depth using a hand-held thermocouple. Soil CO2 fluxes were measured using a portable accumulation chamber instrument.
