Volcano Watch: HVO staff lend a helping hand to Alaska colleagues

Volcano observatories across the United States work together to ensure efficient and thorough monitoring of the nation’s active volcanoes.

This image is from a temporary monitoring camera on the west rim of Kilauea Caldera. The camera is looking E towards the bottom of the newly enlarged Halemaʻumaʻu crater. The crater from left to right (roughly NNE to SSW) is approximately 1 km (0.6 mi) across. The depth of the crater in the visible image from the rim is several hundred meters.

UH Hilo selected most diverse campus by U.S. News & World Report

The University of Hawai`i at Hilo has been named the most ethnically diverse campus among national universities.

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: Kilauea activity update for September 5, 2019

Kῑlauea Volcano is not erupting and its USGS Volcano Alert level remains at NORMAL. Reflecting this level, HVO is now issuing monthly updates for Kīlauea.
