Kilauea volcano (Hawai'i) activity update: rising lava, strong glow

Magma continues to inflate Kilauea volcano and feeds two rising lava lakes, one in Halema`uma`u Overlook Vent (within 125m/410ft of the crater rim) and another within Pu`u `O`o Vent (within 52m/170ft of the east crater rim). Local officials continue to forbid direct access to both sites, but strong glow is visible from both craters on a nightly basis from legally accessible points. The question now is whether either crater will fill enough to spill over, or whether the increased pressure will cause an adjustment and possible eruption somewhere else, as it did this past March! Thanks to the USGS-HVO, there are near-live webcams into both craters, with spectacular views day and night (see links below). Stay tuned!

Lava returned to the crater floor of Pu`u O`o crater this morning, covering it with a small lava lake. The new eruptive episode marks the end of one of the longest pauses in the eruption so far. It followed a day of inflation, first at the summit, then under the eastern rift zone, indicating the rise of underground magam filling the plumbing system again. ... Lees alle

The east rift zone, site of the recent spectacular eruptive episode in Napau crater, is still pausing. No lava is being erupted at present. Also the lava level inside the Halema`uma`u vent has dropped and the summit has been deflating in recent days. Is this the end of one of history's longest-lived eruptions documented ever, or simply a pause? The following weeks will probably tell. Lees alle

After several days of activity, the Kamoamoa fissure eruption in the Napau crater on Kilauea's E rift zone has stopped or paused. Lava emission stopped late on March 9 local time. Both the rift zone and summit are showing deflation and seismic tremor and SO2 output were diminishing, indicating a temporary exhaustion of magma supply in the shallow reservoir. Lees alle

It's an exciting time on Kilauea, with high magma pressure forcing lava to the surface in four locations: the Overlook Vent in Halema`uma`u (within 90m of lowest rim, causing intense night-time glow visible from a distance), within Pu`u `O`o crater, from the TEB vent and satellitic ponds, and at the flow-front in Kalapana, where active lava is typically present and legally accessible to our clients. This excess pressure has also caused many earthquakes in the upper east rift zone, the rising of the Halema`uma`u lava lake, and a collapse of the pyroducts carrying lava to the ocean, where the sea entry has ceased for now. Join us to learn more about the ongoing eruption of Kilauea! ... Lees alle
