Volcano Watch: Kilauea activity update for January 18, 2018

Mauna Loa is not erupting. Rates of deformation and seismicity remain above long-term background levels, but rates are decreased from earlier in the year.

Spectacular aerial view of Kīlauea Volcano’s East Rift Zone lava flows advancing over Pūlama pali in mid-December 2017. As surface lava flows moved through the center kipuka (forested area) on the pali, smoke rose from the burning vegetation. Gases emitted from Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō, the source of the 61g lava flow, can be seen in the distance above the smoke from the burning kipuka. Mauna Loa (left) and Mauna Kea (right) are visible in the far distance. If you look carefully in front of Mauna Loa, you can see the gas plume rising above Halemaʻumaʻu at the summit of Kīlauea. Capturing both the summit and East Rift Zone eruptions in one photo is a rare sight! USGS photo by C. Parcheta.
