Ruapehu (North Island): (26 May) GeoNet reported that the activity at Crater Lake (Te Wai ā-moe) is often dominated by a heating-cooling cycle. These cycles last weeks-to-months. After peaking in April at 42°C, the lake cooled to 35°C by early May. Recent monitoring indicates continuous gas flux which has kept the temperature around 35°C through May.
Sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions remains steady. Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions have increased.

Mauna Loa (Big Island, Hawai'i): (26 May) During the past week the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) recorded 63 small-magnitude earthquakes on the volcano's summit and upper-elevation flanks. Most of these earthquakes occurred at shallow depths of less than 8 km (~5 miles) below ground level.
Slow summit inflation continues to be detected by the GPS, consistent with magma supply to the volcano's shallow storage system.
