Can We Forecast the Behavior in Halema‘uma‘u's Vent?...

Detailed Description

A crusted lava pond was present (at a depth of about 200 yards below the crater floor) within the Halema`uma`u vent cavity on July 4, 2009. Continuous spattering at the northeast margin of the pond illuminated the vent cavity and produced glow that could be seen from the Jaggar Museum Overlook.
