Fissure 8 and the upper lava channel, viewed from the early morning helicopter overflight of the lower East Rift Zone. Recent heavy rains have soaked into the still-warm tephra and the moisture rises as steam (right side of lava channel). Photo taken Tuesday, July 3, 2018 courtesy of U.S. Geological Survey

Kilauea Eruption: Lava flow continues, tradewinds return to push fumes to the south and west Tuesday (July 3)

Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reports that Fissure 8 continues to be very active and is feeding a lava channel to the ocean at Kapoho. The flow is producing a broad ocean entry along the shoreline. Fissure 22 is also active and producing a short flow.  Gas emissions from the fissure eruption and laze at the ocean […]

Fountains from Fissure 8 spatter cone continue to supply lava to the open channel with intermittent small, short-lived overflows. Overflows appear as lighter gray to silver areas on the margins of the channel. A larger of active overflow can be seen in the upper right of the photograph.

High-resolution satellite data are useful for mapping cracks and deformation in the summit caldera at Kīlauea Volcano. This map shows major fractures in yellow (as of June 29) on a base image acquired by the WorldView-2 satellite before the current sequence of events began at Kīlauea. The area of major subsidence has expanded east and south, and slightly west, of the main Halema‘uma‘u crater area. The large, red-shaded area east of Halema‘uma‘u is moving down within a scarp-bounded area, as seen in recent photographs of the summit. Some fractures have also formed to the east-northeast of the red-shaded area of accelerated motion, and also on the south caldera rim where parts of the caldera wall have slumped into the rapidly moving caldera floor below. The dark gray-shaded area within the red shaded area shows the region of most significant down dropping and is currently the deepest part of Kīlauea caldera.

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
