A large Bouguer anomaly on Kauai, similar to anomalies found at most of the other major volcanoes of the Hawaiian Islands, lies about 10 miles east of the caldera indicated by geologic mapping. Another gravity high suggests a second center of volcanism just west of the island. Average Bouguer values on Kauai are higher than on other Hawaiian islands; indi cating either that the crust beneath Kauai is 1-2 km thinner than it is beneath the eastern part of the Hawaiian Chain, or that the zone of… CONTINUE READING
