LavaTalk: September 2, 2014 update on Kilauea’s lava flow

The June 27th lava flow remains active. During a Civil Defense flight this morning, the farthest part of the flow, which had been spreading in the forest over the past few days, was seen to be spilling into yet another ground crack about 12.6 km (~7.8 miles) from the vent and about 1.9 km (~1.2 […]

This wide view taken Monday (Sept 1), looking west, shows the position of the June 27th flow front relative to the nearby Kaohe Homesteads subdivision. The front of the flow is moving through thick forest, and its position can be seen by the plumes of smoke above the center of the photograph. Near these active surface flows, there was also steaming from a ground crack, resulting from lava deep in the crack. The farthest point of this steaming was 1.7 km (1.1 miles) west of the boundary of the Kaohe Homesteads subdivision. Photo courtesy of USGS/HVO

LavaTalk: September 1, 2014 update on Kilauea’s lava flow

The front of the flow is moving through thick forest. Steam coming from a ground crack due to lava deep within is about 1.1 miles West of the boundary of the Kaohe Homesteads subdivision.

Volcano Watch: Kilauea activity update for August 29, 2014

On the East Rift Zone of Kīlauea Volcano, the June 27th flow from Puʻu ʻŌʻō remained active. The farthest point on the steaming ground crack was 11.9 km (7.4 mi) from the vent.

This figure compares the photo above with an equivalent view from a thermal camera on August 28, 2014. The plumes of smoke mark the farthest active lava on the surface (small, scattered lobes of pāhoehoe), which are also shown as small hotspots in the thermal image. The pad of lava that emerged from the ground crack earlier this week was inactive at the surface but still quite warm (high temperature patch in center of image). East of this pad of lava, steaming (just below the center of the photograph) has appeared over the past day, suggesting that lava is continuing to advance below the surface along a ground crack. Direct views into the crack were not possible due to thick vegetation, but close views of the steaming areas with the thermal camera reveal temperatures up to 190 C (370 F). These high temperature are further evidence of lava moving through the crack. Photos courtesy of USGS/HVO

Volcano Watch: June 27th lava flow activity continues, so stay informed!

In response to the USGS/HVO Aug. 22, 2014, news release that Kīlauea’s June 27th lava flow could become a concern for communities downhill of the Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō vent, the Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency has quickly organized a series of informational meetings.

Kīlauea lava flow northeast of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō a potential concern

The June 27th lava flow, named for the date it began erupting, continues to advance to the northeast of its vent on the flank of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō on Kīlauea Volcano’s East Rift Zone.

On August 5 2014, the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) sensor on Suomi-NPP captured natural-color images of both Iselle and Hurricane Julio en route to Hawaii. The image above is a composite of three satellite passes over the tropical Pacific Ocean in the early afternoon. Note that Iselle’s eyewall had grown less distinct; the storm had descreased to category 2 intensity. The bright shading toward the center-left of the image is sunglint, the reflection of sunlight off the water and directly back at the satellite sensor.

Volcano Watch: How do volcanoes affect the weather and climate?

Conventional wisdom among many residents was that the Island of Hawai‘i is immune to hurricanes because its large volcanic mountains obstruct approaching storms, diverting them around the island.

Greg Javar snaps a “selfie” while helping USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory geologist Matt Patrick (right) set up a thermal camera to record lava lake activity within the summit vent of Kīlauea Volcano. Javar and fellow UH-Mānoa student Pua Pali (not shown) were selected to intern at HVO this summer through the Native Hawaiian Science and Engineering Mentorship Program.
