Kauahikaua, J.P., 2017, Gravity Data for Island of Hawai`i: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


This data set includes gravity measurements for the Island of Hawai`i collected as the source data for "Deep magmatic structures of Hawaiian volcanoes, imaged by three-dimensional gravity models" (Kauahikaua, Hildenbrand, and Webring, 2000). Data for 3,611 observations are stored as a single table and disseminated in .CSV format. Each observation record includes values for field station ID, latitude and longitude (in both Old Hawaiian and WGS84 projections), elevation, and Observed Gravity value. See associated publication for reduction and interpretation of these data.

The purpose of this data set is to publish the source data for Kauahikaua, Hindenbrand, and Webring (2000). These data are a historical record of gravity measurements at the time of the study, and thus may serve as the basis for future studies where historical gravity measurements of the Island of Hawai’i are salient.
