Event Description

Prospects for Geothermal Resources and Groundwater in the Saddle Area and Beyond
Dr. Don Thomas, UH Hilo

Don Thomas is working at the center of two resources we need for survival and modern life: water and energy.  This month's presentation will be about recent explorations in the saddle area of Hawaii Island looking for groundwater and geothermal energy resources.  There have been some surprising findings of water at higher elevations than previously suspected and that has led to the recognition of subsurface geologic structures in the interior of the island that could have implications for groundwater and geothermal resources on Hawaii Island and on the older islands as well.  He will also discuss how the results of his Saddle Road test hole, as well as his earlier research on Hilo's deep hydrology, may have applicability to Kona's groundwater system.

Don Thomas is the director of the Center for the Study of Active Volcanoes at University of Hawaii at Hilo.  He has a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Hawaii, and has been active in the study of groundwater hydrology of the Hawaiian Islands.

This pau hana is BYOB/potluck, so please bring a pupu and non-alcoholic beverage to share.  Reusable plates and cups are encouraged, as is taking home your own trash.
