April 18, 2023 — Kīlauea Seismic Imaging Project Node Deployment in Pauahi Crater

Detailed Description

A USGS scientist installs a seismic node within Pauahi Crater, in Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park, as part of the Kīlauea Seismic Imaging Project. The station is one of 1,800 that will collect data for the next two months. If you see people in bright vests walking in areas of Kīlauea summit over the next two months, you are likely seeing the nodes being deployed or retrieved. USGS image by M. Patrick.
