Kenji by: Densities were measured on about pieces of 6 cm diameter, halved core from a km span of the Hawaii Scientific Drilling Program (HSDP) hole near Hilo, Hawaii. The basalt samples were taken from mbsl to the hole bottom at m, at an average spacing of m. Some of the measurements were made during drilling in June at the Cited by:

  Kohala Volcano, the oldest of five shield volcanoes comprising the island of Hawaii, consists of a basalt shield dominated by tholeiitic basalt, Pololu Volcanics, overlain by alkalic lavas, Hawi Volcanics. In the upper Pololu Volcanics the lavas become more enriched in incompatible elements, and there is a transition from tholeiitic to alkalic basalt. In contrast, the Hawi volcanics consist of Cited by: PETROLOGY AND GEOCHEMISTRY OF BASALTS AND RELATED ROCKS TABLE 2 Comparative Analyses of Basalts from Site and Those from Other Oceanic Regions SiO2 A12O3 Fe2O3 FeO MgO CaO Na2O K2O TiO2 p25 Ignition loss B Ba Co Cr Cu Ga Li Mo Ni Sr U V Y Zr Sitea 3 49 63 17 8 5 Cited by: Hawaiian OIBS Tholeiites, Picrites and Alkali Basalt Series.

Marine Geology, 41 () Elsevier Scientific Publishing Company, Amsterdam -- Printed in The Netherlands 63 GEOLOGY OF THE KOHALA SUBMARINE TERRACE, HAWAII* J.F. CAMPBELL and D.L. ERLANDSON Hawaii Institute of Geophysics, University of Hawaii, Honolulu, Hawaii (U.S.A.) (Received Ap ; accepted ) ABSTRACT Campbell, J.F. and Cited by: 3. Kohala Mountain is the northernmost and oldest of the five vol- canoes comprising the island of Hawaii (Fig. 1). Reconnaissance mapping by Stearns and Macdonald () led to the subdivision of Kohala iavas into two stratigraphic units: the Pololu and the Hawi volcanic series. A small amount of basalt also erupts from ocean islands, like Hawaii (see figures in previous sections for distribution of hotspots and plates). There are chemical differences between these types of basalts, so we like to have different names for them. Mid-Ocean Ridge Basalt is fondly called MORB, while Ocean Island Basalt is called OIB. 11, GARCIA: PETROGRAPHY AND OLIVINE AND GLASS CHEMISTRY OF LAVAS descriptions and core photographs in a core log book [Hawaii Scientific Drilling Project, ]. Subdivision of the core into flow units was simple where sediments (sand or ash) or soil separated the flows and where the flows are lithologically distinct.
