Kilauea volcano (Hawai'i), activity update: summit deflation, rift zone pausing
Donnerstag Jan 01, 1970 00:00 |
The east rift zone, site of the recent spectacular eruptive episode in Napau crater, is still pausing. No lava is being erupted at present. Also the lava level inside the Halema`uma`u vent has dropped and the summit has been deflating in recent days. Is this the end of one of history's longest-lived eruptions documented ever, or simply a pause? The following weeks will probably tell.
Long periods at Kilauea volcano without eruptive activity are extremely rare.

Kilauea volcano (Hawai'i) activity update: Longest non-eruptive period since 1982; probable end of 1983-2018 eruption
Samstag, Nov 10, 2018
It has now been 66 days since lava was last at the surface at Kilauea. That is the longest gap since the start of the eruption in 1983- there were 65 days between Episode 2 and 3- and the longest since the 4 months between the two 1982 eruptions. And with no signs of imminent renewal, it seems very likely that the current gap will reach the 90 day mark on December 5- which means the eruptive period that started in 1983 has come to end. When eruptive activity does eventually return, it will be an entirely new eruption. [mehr]
