Kīlauea Eruption Update & USGS Volcano Awareness Month Part 3, February 10, 2022

3:04 AM · Feb 11, 2022

Halemaʻumaʻu crater continues to fill with lava at Kīlauea's summit, expanding its footprint despite its frequent pauses. This past week, eruption output oscillated but only paused once, with good viewing with Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park captured by viewer video submissions of dome fountains and lava whirlwinds. Gas emissions continue to reflect lava output, and remain the most significant impact to island people, with otherwise no change in current volcanic threat. Our time-lapse of the week shows the eastern crater floor bulging, erupting and sagging, continuing its activity from last week. We review media, monitoring signals including earthquakes, and reports courtesy of the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, focusing mainly on Kīlauea but also including the earthquake flurry and other data from Maunaloa this past week. As always we include our custom time-lapses produced from USGS images with live annotations, and discuss live viewer questions as we go. Special this week to close the broadcast, we replay and discuss - “Video throwbacks of the past decade on Kīlauea” by Matt Patrick, geologist, from Volcano Awareness Month 2022 presented by the USGS-HVO
