Hawaii Volcanoes Observatory Update

No activity was observed on the Peace Day flow on today’s overflight, meaning that the Kahaualeʻa 2 flow is now the sole active flow.

The Kahaualeʻa 2 flow today had reached 6.4 km (4.0 miles) northeast of Puʻu ʻŌʻō, and was burning vegetation around the forest boundary.

Much of the Kahaualeʻa 2 flow has traveled over ʻaʻā from Puʻu ʻŌʻō’s early activity in the 1980s.

Active pāhoehoe breakouts are scattered across portions of the Kahaualeʻa 2 flow.

Very few surface flows have been observed in Puʻu ʻŌʻō crater over the past month, but the crater today was far from quiet.

The spatter cone shown here, in the northern portion of the crater, was producing a loud, continuous jetting sound resulting from gas being forced through a tiny opening at the peak.

3.6 Magnitude Earthquake Shakes Volcano Area of Big Island

We just had a 3.6 magnitude earthquake in the Volcano area of the Big Island.

Drawing In Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

Volcano Art Center invites seasoned artist Ken Charon to teach others how to gain inspiration from the stunning natural environment of Kilauea in a series of free instructional outings during the month of July.

Ken Charon

Ken Charon

The offerings are scheduled on Wednesdays, July 3, 10, 17 and 24. The one and a half hour instructional class meets on the porch of the Volcano Art Center Gallery, next to the Kilauea Visitor Center, and is open to park visitors and island residents over eight years of age.

Charon covers basic drawing techniques and other helpful tips before leading participants to a scenic location around the caldera to witness the creative forces of Kilauea and develop the ability to capture its unique natural beauty.  If you have attended this popular offering in the past, coming back is sure to be a new and enriching experience. Charon likes to switch locations to keep things exciting, and inspiring!

Ken Charon is one of the founding members East Hawaii’s artist cooperative “Stairway to ART” located above Reuben’s Mexican Restaurant at 336 Kamehameha Avenue in downtown Hilo. The venue displays work of their cooperating members promoting freedom of artistic expression as well as private art lessons and mentoring for art students of all ages.

Sign-up is on a first-come, first-served basis the day of the class, so please arrive prior to the 10:30am start time to ensure your place. Bring a sketch pad, pencils, eraser, sharpener and a folding chair or mat for sitting, if necessary. Dress for both warm sun and chilly rain, as the weather is unpredictable. This offering is free although park entrance fees apply. For more information call (808) 967-8222 or visit volcanoartcenter.org.

Volcano Art Center (VAC) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1974 to develop, promote and perpetuate the artistic, cultural and environmental heritage of Hawaii’s people through the arts and education.

 

USGS Report – Lava Flows Near Puʻu ʻŌʻō and Ocean Entry Continues

Two ocean entry points remain active near Kupapaʻu Point, near the boundary of Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park.

The eastern entry has produced a larger plume than that at the western entry, which tends to be weak and wispy. Today several small breakouts were active just inland of the eastern entry point, creating a narrow cascade of lava pouring down the sea cliff.

This photo looks south towards Puʻu ʻŌʻō, where a vent is supplying lava to the Kahaualeʻa II flow, north of the cone.

This slow-moving flow has reached the forest line, producing small scattered brush fires.

The flow consists of numerous slow-moving pāhoehoe lobes.

The summit eruption in Halemaʻumaʻu crater remains active.

The lava lake is within the Overlook crater (the source of the gas plume), which is in the southeast portion of Halemaʻumaʻu Crater.

 

Halema‘uma‘u Eruption Reaches Five-Year Anniversary

Kīlauea Volcano’s summit eruption within Halema‘uma‘u Crater marks its fifth year of continuous activity on Tues., Mar. 19.

To commemorate this anniversary, rangers at Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park will offer additional “Life on the Edge” talks at the Jaggar Museum observation deck, which overlooks the fuming, enlarging summit vent. The 20-minute talks, offered on Mar. 19 at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., noon, 2 p.m., 3:30 p.m. and 5 p.m., encompass the dramatic geological and mythological history of Halema‘uma‘u Crater.

Kīlauea’s summit vent opened at 2:58 a.m., HST, on Mar. 19, 2008, when an explosive eruption created a gaping hole about 115 feet wide on the south wall of Halema‘uma‘u Crater.  Nighttime glow from this hole suggested the presence of molten lava, but it wasn’t until six months later that a lake of roiling lava deep within the vent was definitively observed by U.S. Geological Survey Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) scientists.

With the opening of the Halema‘uma‘u vent, already-high summit sulfur dioxide (SO2) gas emission rates increased even more, resulting in increased vog (volcanic air pollution) downwind.  Although the summit SO2 emissions have declined since 2008, they are still averaging 800-1200 tonnes/day, creating hazardous conditions along closed sections of the park’s Crater Rim Drive and poor air quality farther downwind of the vent.

Since 2008, rock collapses within the vent have enlarged its opening on the floor of Halema‘uma‘u Crater.  The vent is now about 520 feet by 700 feet (the area of about 21 Olympic-sized pools), and, according to HVO Scientist-in-Charge Jim Kauahikaua, is likely to continue growing through further collapses of overhung sections of the vent rim.

Halemaumau then and now1

Kīlauea Volcano’s summit vent  “then and now.”  In April 2008, a month after it opened, the vent within Halema‘uma‘u Crater was about 115 feet in diameter.  As of March 2013, it is more than 500 feet across. USGS photos.

Halemaumau then and now2

Kauahikaua describes the lava within the vent as a continuously circulating gas-rich “foam” that rises and falls depending on changes in Kīlauea’s subsurface magma pressure.  The lava lake reached its highest level to date on Oct. 26, 2012, when the lava surface rose to within 72 feet of the vent rim.

While the actual lava lake is not visible from safe viewing areas, its glow—the diffusion of incandescent lava light within the gas plume rising from the vent—is spectacular and easily observed from Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park overlooks on clear nights.  When the lava lake level is especially high, park visitors can sometimes hear sharp sounds as rocks in the vent wall expand and crack due to the increased heat.

“The amazing beauty of this eruption, and the ease of viewing opportunities within Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park, provides both visitors and residents with unforgettable experiences,” said Park Superintendent Cindy Orlando. “Where else in the world can you park your car, and walk just a few feet to behold the spectacle of one of the world’s most active volcanoes?”

Jaggar Museum and the overlook are wheelchair- and stroller-accessible. Other vantage points for viewing Halema‘uma‘u within the park include Kīlauea Overlook, Kīlauea Iki Overlook, and Keanakako‘i Overlook.

The summit eruption, Kīlauea’s second longest since the early 1900s, can also be experienced through photos, videos, and webcam images posted on HVO’s website (http://hvo.wr.usgs.gov).  A USGS Fact Sheet about this ongoing eruption is currently in press, and will be available online in the coming months.

Video of Lava Surf Photography by CJ Kale and Nick Selway

Photographers CJ Kale and Nick Selway waited more than five years to capture a never-before seen-view of an active volcano. When the conditions were finally right, the two friends risked their lives to get it.
