Kilauea Eruption: Lava spattering observed in Fissure 8

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) reports that yesterday afternoon and early evening, spattering was observed in the fissure 8 cone. It is common for eruptions to go through periods of diminished output, or to pause completely, only to reactivate days, weeks, or even months later.

Kilauea Eruption: Volcano still fairly quiet, Civil Defense discontinues daily updates

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reports that activity on the lower east rift zone of Kilauea Volcano has diminished and remained quiet for over a week. The only surface activity is a small, crusted lava pond inside the fissure 8 cone, and a few areas along the coast where lava is entering the ocean. Sulfur dioxide […]

Map as of 12:00 p.m. HST, August 14, 2018. The lull in eruptive activity on Kīlauea's lower East Rift Zone continues. Lava flows have not expanded since August 9. The fissure 8 cone still hosts a small pond of lava, but no new lava has entered the existing channel in over a week. Lava may intermittently enter the ocean between the Kapoho Bay and Isaac Hale Beach Park areas until residual lava contained within the existing flow is depleted. Given the dynamic nature of Kīlauea's eruption, map details shown here are accurate as of the date/time noted. Shaded purple areas indicate lava flows erupted in 1840, 1955, 1960, and 2014-2015. A NEW MAP WILL NOT BE ISSUED until the current conditions change.

Kilauea Eruption: Fissure 8 crusted over, lava flows have not expanded since August 9

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reports that eruptive activity remains at reduced levels at Kilauea Summit and the lower east rift zone. Seismic activity at the summit continues to be low with few earthquakes. The lava pond in fissure 8 cone is mostly crusted over. Fissure 8, along with other fissures, continues to release gas. Lava […]

Ocean entries were small and scattered this morning, but lava had made no significant advance toward Isaac Hale Beach Park. The Pohoiki boat ramp remains intact, but access from it to the open bay has been cut off by a sand bar that extends from the jetty to the shore. As molten lava streams into the ocean, it shatters into small glassy fragments, forming black sand that's transported along the coast by longshore currents.

Kilauea Eruption: Fissure 8 lava pond is crusted over, fumes continue to be released

Although a lull in activity continues, it is common for eruptions to go through periods of diminished output, or to pause completely, only to reactivate days or weeks later, or longer. Volcanic activity could occur at any time. Residents should remain informed and heed Hawaii County Civil Defense messages and warnings.

Clear weather this afternoon afforded a stunning view of Kīlauea's summit, which has been "quiet" since August 4, with no significant subsidence or collapses. The flat ledge shown here (center) is part of the former Halema‘uma‘u crater floor, which dropped precipitously between mid-May and early August.

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reports that eruptive activity remains minimal at Kilauea Summit and at the lower east rift zone from fissure 8.

This thermal map shows the fissure system and lava flows as of 6 am on Monday, August 6. Fissure 8 activity has decreased substantially over the past few days, with only a weak lava pond active within the Fissure 8 cone. There were no signs on the surface of lava being supplied from the vent into the channel. Nevertheless, residual lava in the flow continues to enter the ocean, mainly around Ahalanui. The black and white area is the extent of the thermal map. Temperature in the thermal image is displayed as gray-scale values, with the brightest pixels indicating the hottest areas. The thermal map was constructed by stitching many overlapping oblique thermal images collected by a handheld thermal camera during a helicopter overflight of the flow field.
