In April 2009, I assisted National Park Service personnel in determining whether it would be possible to gain vertical access to an alpine cave. This project required helicopter access and involved examining several collapse pit entrances associated with a lava tube on Mauna Loa, Big Island, Hawaii.  This project was funded by the National Park Service.
