Exploring for Geothermal Resources in a Dormant Volcanic System: The Haleakala Southwest Rift Zone, Maui, Hawai'i

Abstract

Suites of new geophysical and geochemical surveys provide evidence for geothermal resource at the Haleakala Southwest Rift Zone (HSWRZ) on Maui Island, Hawai'i. This poster outlines the Site's background, the geophysical surveys conducted on the Site (LiDAR, gravity and magnetics), the geochemiclal surveys conducted on the Site (CO2 flux), and summarizes the recent findings and conclusions.
