Abstract

"Iwo Jima, in the western Pacific Ocean, consists of Motoyama, a broad volcanic cone, at the north, and Mt. Suribachi at the south, with an undulating isthmus between. . . . The temperature of the water ranges from 105 degrees to 179 degrees F., and the water is somewhat mineralized. The most favorable area for ground-water development is the isthmus."
