Kīlauea & Maunaloa Update, August 19, 2021

3:04 AM · Aug 20, 2021

A few days shy of 3 months since its last visible lava, Kīlauea's earthquakes show variations while Maunaloa remains relatively quiet. We review the current monitoring data and reports courtesy of the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, and add a short reflection on the 2020-21 eruption volume and depth in the context of other historical summit eruptions. We present new USGS photos of fieldwork on both volcanoes and discuss live viewer questions as usual! This program is brought to you in part by a grant from the Hawaiʻi Island Strong Fund of the Hawaiʻi Community Foundation in partnership with the County of Hawaiʻi, and from smaller donations from viewers like you.
