The new lava breakout near Puu Oo on 22 Nov 2016 (image: USGS)
Essentially, the eruption continues unchanged. The lava lake in the summit caldera fluctuates in level and was 17 m (56 ft) below the floor of Halema'uma'u crater yesterday. It is expected to rise again now that a new inflation cycle has started. Read more... Lees alle

Kilauea's summit lava lake seen yesterday; the black areas inside Halema'uma'u are the recent lava overflows in mid Oct (image: HVO)
No significant changes have occurred over the past weeks. Currently, the summit lava lake inside Halema'uma'u crater stands relatively high at 12 m below the floor of the main crater and is clearly visible from the Jagger museum viewpoint. Read more...

Small overflow of Kilauea's summit lava lake on 15 Oct 2016 (image: HVO)
No significant changes have occurred at the volcano recently. The level of the summit lava lake rises and falls more or less along with the inflation-deflation cycles. On Saturday (15 Oct), the lava lake overflowed twice onto the Halema'uma'u crater floor before dropping again. Read more... Lees alle

Our recent expedition to Kilauea in mid Sep 2016 coincided with exceptionally high levels of volcanic activity as the period was dominated by inflation at the summit, bringing the lava lake into view from the lookout, and high effusion rates at the lava ocean entry of Kamokuna. Impressions from the activity can be found grouped in various galleries.

New image galleries from Kilauea volcano, Hawaii
The activity at the volcano continues with no significant changes. The recent trend of deflation is still ongoing and the lava lake in the summit crater has dropped significantly (yesterday: 24 m below the rim) and is no longer in direct view from the Jagger Museum lookout. Read more... Lees alle

Lava flow entering the sea last week
The eruption continues with no significant changes. A sharp deflation since yesterday resulted in the Halema'uma'u lava lake drop by 14 meters in a single day. It is currently no longer visible from the Jagger museum overlook. Read more...

Kilauea's summit lava lake seen last evening (image: HVO)
Following the inflation cycle that began 2 days ago (and might be now turning into deflation), the lava lake in the Halema'uma'u summit crater has risen again into clear view from the HVO observatory. This morning, its surface was only 12 m (39 ft) below the rim. Read more... Lees alle

Kilauea's lava ocean entry yesterday evening (photo: Tom Pfeiffer / VolcanoDiscovery)
The eruption continues with no significant changes: lava continues to flow into the ocean at Kamokuna and several breakouts are active along the lava tube both on the pali and in the coastal flat, at about 2 km distance from the coast. Read more...
