Kilauea volcano (Hawai'i), activity update: still lava flow from Thanksgiving Eve Breakout

Tuesday Mar 10, 2009 13:23 PM | DOOR: TS

It was reported that during 25 February-3 March lava flowed SE from
underneath Kilauea's Thanksgiving Eve Breakout through a lava tube system, reaching the Waikupanaha
ocean entry. A sizable collapse of the Waikupanaha bench was seen on 28 February. Thermal
anomalies suggested surface lava flows.
The vent in Halema'uma'u crater continued to produce a white plume; incandescence was seen from the vent.

It was reported that during 12-18 November lava flowed SE through a tube system from underneath Kilauea's Thanksgiving Eve Breakout (TEB). It was reaching the Waikupanaha ocean entry. Incandescence and active surface flows were seen at the base of the pali fault. Several earthquakes were located beneath the south of the caldera and along the S-flank fault. Beneath Halema'uma'u crater earthquakes ranged from 20 to 40, but could not be located. The vent in Halema'uma'u crater continued to produce a white plume and drifted mainly SW depositing small amounts of tephra. Night-time incandescence was seen at the base of a plume. Sounds resembling distant surf and rockfalls were reported in the vicinity of the crater. The sulfur dioxide emission rate was 800-1200 t per day on 14 and 17 November. [meer...]

It was reported that during 3-9 September, lava flowed SE through a lava tube system from underneath Kilauea's Thanksgiving Eve Breakout (TEB) and rootless shield complex, reaching the Waikupanaha ocean entry and one further to the E. On 5 September, geologists saw multiple surface flows during an aerial observation: four on the coastal plain, and a large 'a'a flow and a small pahoehoe flow in the abandoned Royal Gardens subdivision.
