Kilauea volcano update

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:


Two large clusters of lava sea entries were/are active, fed by two early separated tube systems, with the eastermost one being the most active one.
Large and many breakouts of lava occur over a wide area, both on the various lavashields below and around Pu'u O'o, on the steep pali (the steeper hillside towards the ocean, corresponding a major fault, where the coastal section of Big Island is moving downwards to the ocean), and on the flat coastal flowfield. Some of the breakouts on the pali produced long channelled flows, estimated to be about 200-500m long, beautifully visible at night. On the E part of the Pali an area of about 1km width has been covered with recent flows during the past few days and the whole area could be seen glowing.
Immediately next to Pu'u O'o, a glowing E-aligned row of hornitos, some spattering, mark the underground path of the lava. Inside Pu'u O'o, the crater floor is just a few meters lower than the lowest part of the N rim, covered by recent overflows from the northermost cluster of vents. During a vist on the 17th of Feb., at least 7 different vents inside the crater were spattering, throwing lava up to 30m high; other 5-7 ones were glowing brightly. On another visit on the 23rd, spattering activity had largely ceased.

Kilauea is erupting a lot of lava and the expedition is a huge sucess (so far)... Two active ocean entries, uncountable breakouts on the flowfield and the upper slopes as well as an intense activity at and around the Pu'u O'o cone are present. Tom and his small group are on location,- more photos and reports will be posted when time permitting. ... lire toutes
