Lava from fissure 8 is fed into a channel that travels about 13 km (8 mi) to the sea. A plume marks the location of fissure 8, visible in the upper right; a small plume in the upper center marks the location of fissure 22. Each morning, HVO field crews conduct an overflight of the lava channel to determine if there have been any overflows. Intermittent small, short-lived overflows have occurred, but these overflows rarely extend beyond the existing flow field. Photo taken Saturday, June 30, 2018 courtesy of U.S. Geological Survey

A generalized graphic of how a collapse/explosion event sequence can occur. The upper graphic represents a cross-section of the crater filled with rock rubble and the lower graphic is an example of a typical number of earthquakes observed during a particular phase of the collapse/explosion cycle. Initially, the piston is supported by the magma reservoir. It is stable and there is very low seismicity. Second, as magma drains, stress on the faults increases and there is an earthquake swarm on the caldera ring faults. Third, the piston collapses down from its own weight. A large collapse earthquake occurs and a plume can result. Graphic credit: Brian Shiro

Volcano Watch: What causes the collapse/explosion events at Kīlauea’s summit?

What is causing these earthquakes? The short answer is that the rigid rock of the caldera floor is responding to the steady withdrawal of magma from a shallow reservoir beneath the summit.
