An Initial Survey of Caves of the Hawaiian Islands
William R. Halliday


Dr. William R. Halliday, while on duty with the US Navy, traveled extensively in the Pacific. His visits to the little known cavern areas of the Pacific islands have extended our knowledge of speleology to many places of scientific interest. The lava caves of Hawaii have received little attention in the past even though they are in an area that is renown for its volcanoes. This paper outlines the interesting potentials of speleolgical research on these volcanic islands.
