Detailed Description

The degassing lava lake within Halema‘uma‘u at the summit of Kīlauea was a fitting backdrop in 2009 for USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory geologist Janet Babb, who later co-produced a video about the summit eruption. The lava lake drained away in 2018 as the summit crater collapsed, but the video—USGS General Information Product 182—can still be viewed online. Babb recently retired from HVO. USGS photo.
