A compilation of two time-lapse videos by USGS-HVO shows the rise of water within Halema‘uma‘u crater at the summit of Kīlauea volcano in Hawai‘i. Since its appearance in late July 2019, the water lake has grown to "approximately 107 meters (~351 feet) by 211 meters (~692 feet)" by March 19, 2020 and "as of April 1st, the current depth is approximately 32 meters or 105 feet." The first sequence was captured between August 6 and September 8, 2019 on HVO's K3 webcam, and is overlayed on the second sequence captured between November 1, 2019, and March 26, 2020. Both record 1 image per day.
