Volcano Watch: Kilauea activity update for July 20, 2017

This past week, Kīlauea Volcano’s summit lava lake fluctuated in concert with summit inflation and deflation, with levels ranging 82–148 feet (25–45 m) below the vent rim.

Kīlauea Volcano’s Kamokuna ocean entry photographed on May 23, 2017 (left) and July 13, 2017 (right) show how lava flowing from the tube has both widened and thickened the delta. Near the sea cliff, the delta appears to have doubled in thickness over the past seven weeks, creating a distinctly sloped surface from the base of the cliff to the sea. As of mid-July, the Kamokuna lava delta was estimated to be about 1150 feet (350 m) wide and about 6 acres in area. Large cracks on the delta indicate its instability and potential for collapse.
