Volcano Watch: Kīlauea hazard assessments include analyses of salts on volcanic ash

Upon contact with water, either through ash falling into water catchments or by rain falling on ash, the soluble components are washed from the ash.

Low sulfur dioxide gas emissions on Kīlauea have resulted in greatly diminished vog (volcanic air pollution) in Hawaii, giving rise to spectacular views on the island. Here, looking across the field of lava erupted from Kīlauea's lower East Rift Zone this past summer, the shield-shaped profiles of Mauna Loa (left) and Mauna Kea (right) can be clearly seen in the far distance.

Volcano Watch: Kilauea activity update for October 18, 2018

Kīlauea is not erupting. Summit and East Rift Zone activity are greatly reduced, with low rates of seismicity, deformation, and gas emissions recorded this past week.
