Activity at Kilauea is at low levels at present and only little lava can be seen: during the past week, the lava entry at the East Lae`Apuki point continued to be active, and a few surface lava flows were sometimes visible on the Pulama Pali fault scarp and the coastal flat. By 22 August, surface lava on the W branch of the PKK lava flow was no longer visible.

The world's longest ongoing eruptino continues with a beatiful display: new breakouts of lava have appeared on the slope towards the sea (on the E branch of the PKK flow high on Pulama pali) on the morning of June 20, forming a narrow river of lava. [lire toutes]

Phil and the Volcano Discovery Hawaii team went to Pu`u `O`o and confirmed that a small lava lake is still active inside the East Pond Vent. They were able to go down inside the crater; the hornito has increased in size, with a large hole in its center, maybe 20-25 meters wide, which contains the pond of lava probably 15 meters down the pit. Nice surface waves could be observed in there!

The 3 ocean lava entries at East Lae`apuki (the largest with three visible entry points), East Kamoamoa, and Kamoamoa points (both weak) are still active at Kilauea volcano in Hawaii. The 3 corresponding alimentation systems feed surface lava flows that are active on and just below Pulama pali. The westermost one of these flows has three clusters of breakouts low on the pali and the gentle slope below. The middle branch hostsonly two breakout areas. The east branch is the largest of the three and has a number of breakouts strung along the feeding tube from low on the pali to the slope below.
All (or at least most) vents inside Pu`u `O`o are glowing, including those in West Gap. A small lava lake keeps refilling and draining back inside the East Pond Vent.

After a slight decrease in activity towards the beginning of March, (visual) lava effusion rates have again increased drastically during the past 10 days. About three times the average volume of lava from Kilauea volcano has been flowing into the ocean, forming a new ocean entry cluster at Kamoamoa. At the time of writing, lava is flowing into the sea at about 10 different points distributed over 3 ocean entry clusters.

Volcanic activity at Kilauea has decreased in late February and early march compared to the levels in eary-mid February, but is still quite high.
Two ocean entries are still weakly active, one at East Lae`apuki and the other at Ka`ili`ili's ocean entry is glowing.
Several lava flows have been observed on the the Pulama pali and Pu'u 'O'o is still producing a lot of glow, although spattering seems to be less vigorous than in February.

On repeated visits by the Volcano Discovery Hawaii Team during the past 10 days, activity levels at Kilauea volcano were seen to be at very high levels:

Since the 31th of January, lava from Kilauea volcano, Big Island, Hawai'i, is flowing into the sea again at two different entry points. Both entries, about 6 km apart, are well alimentated and consits of clusters of 10-15 separated entries, some as lava falls over older cliffs, some as lava gushing out from tubes directly into the surf or temporary black-sand beaches.
A great number of breakouts occur all over the slope connecting the vent Pu'u O'o and the coastal flat as well as on the coastal area itself. Pu'u O'o itself is brightly glowing at night, with about 15 active vents, some of which were observed violently spattering (as on Thu., 10th).
The VolcanoDiscovery team is on location and has visited the areas a few days ago and will probably post more updates including photographs in the coming days.
