    University of Hawaii researchers probing the aquifer on a high plateau on Mauna Loa-Mauna Kea needed a diamond wireline core drilling rig, brought to the Big Island from Minnesota, to drill deep underneath the volcanic slopes. They tapped into an aquifer at 1,800 feet, the first time a well had produced fresh water in this arid region that is home to the Army's Pohakuloa Training Area. Photo: Donald Thomas
