Kilauea volcano, Hawai'i - eruption updates 2012

Ocean entry widens, lava lakes rising again

For most of December 2012, lava from Kīlauea was visible erupting onto the coastal plain and continued flowing over the sea-cliff into the Pacific Ocean. As each different lobe of the 0.6mi/1km wide flow reached the ocean, it created a small ocean entry for several days before losing its volume to a neighboring lava flow. This pattern continues today, with typically 3 to 6 different lava ocean entry points reported by our guides, as well as active lava flows visible just inland where they can be more safely approached. The ~5mi/8km round-trip hike takes an average person 2 hours each way, coming from the upwind and shorter direction.

There is also a big breakout of lava flows on the coastal plain closer to the base of the pali, with more vigorous action but at a farther distance for those willing and able. This activity has persisted for almost a week amidst a general pattern of inflation and more lava on the volcano over the recent month.

In fact this renewed pressure has caused the Halema`uma`u lava lake to rise within 30m/100ft of spilling onto the 1974 crater floor, close to our record high for the current eruption of 27m/89ft on October 26, 2012. Frequent cracking & booming sounds are audible from the Jaggar Overlook in the National Park, with very strong glow from dusk to dawn. Previous estimates indicate the lava lake would be directly visible from Jaggar Overlook if it rises to within 20m/65ft, so stay tuned for the inevitable!

High pressure has also played a part in a persistent lava lake present within Pu`u `O`o crater spilling out and continuing to repave the crater floor, as well as actually overflowing the eastern crater walls on several occasions during the past week! A string of clear nights on the typically cloudy side of the island has allowed views of glow from that area from a distance.

Earthquake counts are also increased as the volcano strains over the magmatic pressure, with a M4.6 widely felt across the island on January 5, 2013 at the beginning of the sequence. The summit GPS line shows a similar uptick since about the same time, leading us to speculate that once again more magma is entering the volcano from below than is leaving it from above through lava flows.

This brings us back to an increasingly common situation of wondering how the volcano will relieve this new pressure, with its options being more abundant and more vigorous lava flows, lava lakes spilling over from both craters, or a new fissure eruption in the months to come. We've already had 3 new fissures and 2 major increases in lava flows in the last 2 years, Pu`u `O`o has spilled over or out several times, and the Halema`uma`u lava lakes inches ever closer. What will happen next?? Come join us on the volcano and find out!

Une branche de débit de lave est de la Fissure de jour de paix a atteint les plaines à l'ouest de Kalapana, faisant de vues spectaculaires au coucher du soleil, voir notre vidéo d'intervalles liée ci-dessous !
Les flux à l'avant de cette branche orientale ont été plutôt lent, et il semble qu'une grande partie de la lave a été détournée à une branche occidentale, qui est également prête à descendre le « pali ». La randonnée de ce flux-front de l'est est maintenant inférieure à 3,5 mi/6 km de notre accès légal dans l'ensemble de la propriété privée de Kalapana, ou environ 2 heures dans chaque sens.
Sur une note triste, lave maison de Jack incendiée enfin hier soir à la suite de beaucoup la branche de débit des lave ouest plus large et plus active.
Trois hélicoptères ont été évacués de la maison vers 6 h, tel que documenté par Leigh Hilbert qui était avec lui (voir le lien vers ses photos ci-dessous). Maison de Jack a été un des premiers menacées par des coulées de lave de Pu'u ' haut de O'o des fontaines en 1983--en fait, ces premiers grand ' a ' a flux semblent avoir agi comme une barrière de dérivation depuis 29 ans, poussant les flux de chaque côté et la préservation du « kipuka » de Jack (île d'arbres dans le champ de lave), cette américaine jusqu'à la nuit dernière. Ce fut la dernière maison dans les jardins royaux, qui peut prétendre aujourd'hui être complètement détruite. Nos pensées sont avec Jack aujourd'hui, une journée dont il savait viendrait par la suite.

Après quelques ajustements souterrains la semaine dernière entre les volcans Kilauea et Mauna Loa, pression continue de pousser de magma à travers sommet et l'est zone de rift du Kīlauea\\\, éruption à partir de la Fissure de jour de paix sur le flanc est de la Pu'u ' O'o vent et construire une lave tube système actuellement outletting près du sommet de l'ancienne subdivision de jardins royaux.

Le débit-front est presque prêt à descendre la partie la plus pentue de la colline, ou « pali » et devrait présenter des vues spectaculaires dans les prochains jours, si la météo pluvieuse de l'île permet ! Visites privées avec notre priorité de lave sont disponibles à nouveau pour voir cette activité, mais nécessitent toujours une randonnée aller-retour mi 8/13 km sur le sol inégal, stérile de lave récentes de la volcano\\\ flux et est donc classé « difficile ». Nous publierons des photos de ces nouveaux flux dans les prochains jours, qui nous espérons va ressembler comme nos séquences vidéo & time-lapse du 4 décembre 2011--voir le lien ci-dessous pour en savoir plus !

Pendant ce temps, le lac de lave au sommet du Kīlauea\\\ au Halema'uma'u continue de produire une lueur orange vif qui est facilement visible sur la plupart des nuits de dans le Parc National des volcans Hawai ' I et incluse dans la plupart de nos visites ! Voir le dernier lien ci-dessous pour un film accéléré spectaculaire de cette lueur de sommet produit par un de nos clients de la tour !
