Day-to-day changes in the water level at the bottom of Halema‘uma‘u are subtle and impossible to accurately measure. But when comparing views of the pond over several days some differences can be seen, as shown in these images. Rocks that were visible in the water on September 2 could no longer be seen today (September 5). Note particularly that two rocks protruding above the water at the top of the September 2 photo are now submerged—evidence that the pond continues to slowly rise. USGS photos by D. Swanson.

Volcano Watch: New insights gained from Kīlauea Volcano’s 2018 summit collapses

A year ago, USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory scientists and Island of Hawaiʻi residents were in the throes of an historically unprecedented series of events for Kīlauea.

Scientists use a laser diffraction particle size analyzer to examine fine ash from the 2018 Kīlauea summit explosions. The research examines fine ash (grains 1 mm to 1 micrometer) and investigates the processes of eruption, fragmentation, and respiratory health hazards (PM10, PM2.5). USGS image by A. Van Eaton
