Timelapse of Kilauea Eruption Resumption

12:43 AM · Jan 10, 2023

Watch as lava rapidly covers the footprint of the previous lava lake in the first hours of the eruption and then lava in the foreground begin to solidify and shrink the size of the active lava lake. Eruption Update from USGS-HVO for Monday (1.9.22) - Activity Summary: The summit eruption of Kīlauea Volcano, within Halemaʻumaʻu crater, continued over the past 24 hours. All recent eruptive activity has been confined to the crater. No significant changes have been observed at the summit or in either rift zone. Halemaʻumaʻu Lava Lake Observations: Eruption of lava from vents on the central eastern portion of Halemaʻumaʻu crater floor continued over the past 24 hours. Activity is concentrated in the eastern half of the crater and within the basin in the western half of the crater that was the focus of activity in 2021–2022. The active lava area in the eastern half of the crater now has one dominent fountain, and the active area has shrunk slightly over the past 24 hours. A live-stream video of the lava lake is available at: Summit Observations: Summit tiltmeters recorded inflation over the past 24 hours. Volcanic tremor remains above background levels. A sulfur dioxide (SO2) emission rate of approximately 4,000 tonnes per day (t/d) was measured yesterday, January 8, 2023. Rift Zone Observations: No unusual activity has been noted along the East Rift Zone or Southwest Rift Zone; low rates of ground deformation and seismicity continue along both. Measurements from continuous gas monitoring stations downwind of Puʻuʻōʻō in the middle East Rift Zone remain below detection limits for SO2, indicating that SO2 emissions from Puʻuʻōʻō are negligible.
