Kilauea Volcano (Hawaii)

Lava continues to enter the sea at Kilauea volcano in Hawaii. Lava is visible in Pu`u `O`o crater, where it enters a lava tube and travels to the ocean and reappears at East Lae`apuki. Inflation of the volcano summit has been occurring since mid January indicating ongoing lava movement inside the volcano. The inflation totals about 15 micro radians at Kilauea Iki, which is normally a relatively quiet station. In 1959 Kilauea Iki crater was the site of a 1900 ft lava fountain. The number of earthquakes along the upper east rift zone has been unusually high. Some shallow earthquakes are being registered beneath the summit. Recently a spectacular skylight has been visible at the volcano, which is a window into a lava tube. Occasionally there are lava breakouts on the Pali. The current eruption of Kilauea volcano, which began in 1983, is the largest eruption of lava on the volcano's east rift zone in the past five hundred years. Don't miss this opportunity to see a spectacular eruption. Travel with Volcanologist John Seach to Kilauea Volcano on 28th April 2006. Trip booking now!
