Paper Abstract

Our goal is to visualize the shape and structure in a data set of earthquake hypocenters collected from the island of Hawaii over a twenty-three year period. The earthquakes provide information about the magma system in this region and define a collection of conduits and reservoirs around the active volcanos. Because the data is scattered, traditional visualization methods are difficult to use (without interpolation). In this paper, we present some preliminary efforts to extract and define the structures within the data set.
